Climate change is the challenge of our generation, and young people are the inheritors of humanity’s response to climate change.

For that reason – Generation Zero, a youth-led organisation, was founded with the central purpose of providing solutions for New Zealand to cut carbon pollution through smarter transport, liveable cities & independence from fossil fuels.

We are witnessing a global shift away from polluting fossil fuels, and as New Zealanders, we are fortunate enough to possess an abundance of opportunities to make this transition.

We can power our homes, our industries and our economy with clean safe energy. We can build more liveable cities with greater housing and transport choices to attract the best and brightest to New Zealand. We can move beyond fossil fuels and create a safer and healthier nation by doing so.

These solutions will not come from one minority, one political party, or one ideology. These solutions come from real New Zealanders, from all backgrounds joining together under a central vision.

It is time for New Zealand to step up, act responsibly and secure a safe thriving zero carbon Aotearoa.

    I don’t see much about who generation zero actually is here….? Tell me, for instance, who was the generation zero luminary that people on Facebook are talking about who told an audience member at the Fickling Centre function this evening to “Shut the fuck up.”? And how, exactly, does this serve climate change activism? What was this person doing on stage? Were they some kind of expert? Or, perhaps, simply self entitled or a privileged simpleton?

    Congratulations to the younger generation for caring about our future and being active about initiating change. Congratulations also to the two young women who wrote the excellent opinion article today in the Christchurch Press about the St Asaph St cycleway and the pressing need to provide alternative transport options to make our city centres function better for everyone, not just motor cars often with just one person inside them. In a democracy our opinions do matter, but for this to happen we need to express them as eloquently as we are able.
