John Stowell commented on Election Scorecards Launched 2019-07-18 08:52:40 +1200Talking Auckland, we definitely need to know where candidates for the coming local government elections stand on responding to the climate emergency with genuine urgency. I also think that the Council should explore more genuinely participatory ways of including the voice of the public and working together. Current so-called consultation keeps the public at arms length and is very secretive about how the results are used, if at all. We need to establish trust and work to a common aim or the potentially uncomfortable steps needed will never be taken until is os too late.

As a volunteer driven organisation we rely on the commitment of our 100's of volunteers across the country to campaign for the solutions to climate change. We focus on two main things:
- Raising public awareness of the solutions to climate change in NZ, how these can be achieved, and how they be a part of making them happen.
- Empowering and upskilling young New Zealanders to take action on climate change.
We campaign for policy solutions by working with the NZ public to influence decision-makers. We focus on transport systems, energy, and urban planning. Not only do these areas provide opportunities for significant emission savings - but they are also issues that affect the everyday lives of New Zealanders. We try to campaign on issues that are relevant to New Zealanders and allow climate change solutions to be accessible real-life things as opposed to huge invisible challenges.Become a volunteer
