Mission Statement

Generation Zero is a youth-led climate action organisation. We mobilise New Zealanders to engage with decision-making and campaign for intergenerational climate justice.


  • As we work on a zero carbon future, we will collaborate with tangata whenua to ensure Aotearoa’s success. This means committing to honouring and upholding Te Tiriti and amplifying the perspectives of tangata whenua.
  • As we go on this journey to create a just society, honesty, respect and empathy are with us every step of the way. This will ensure we have a dignified and just transition from fossil fuels. Centering and amplifying the voices of those impacted by transitions from fossil fuels and prioritising what they will need.
  • Volunteering and advocacy are more than just a job. We are building a community of strong reciprocal, active relationships that can hold us together as we face the future. Within Generation Zero and with our allies we aim to create a safe space where our relationships and wellbeing is prioritised.
  • We support policies that help deliver our vision of a thriving, equitable future beyond fossil fuels, regardless of where they come from. The best solutions to the issues we face are ones in which all of us can participate; not just a single political party or ideology. When we work together in solidarity with one another; we can create a thriving world to live in.
