Over the weekend, I have been joining people across Wellington (as well as across the world) who have been showing their support for a broad political agreement that will reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions.??
Local schools in the Ohariu electorate Onslow College and Tawa College have already held related events last Friday. I gave a talk at the Centre for EU studies at Canterbury University on climate change issues.
The next day I was at the Avalon Park Windmills in Lower Hutt at a 350.org event organised by the St James Anglican church. A video of their rally is now posted on Youtube:
I was at the Labour stall at the 350 Wellington Climate Action Festival, held on the Wellington Waterfront (next to Te Papa). Pictures of the day are here and below:
These events were part of a day of action by 350 Aotearoa. Other events included an Auckland bikeride from Britomart to Mt Eden where Jacinda Ardern spoke, and an event ??at New Brighton in Christchurch featuring Ruth Dyson and Lianne Dalziel.
Climate change is not a fringe issue; people from a diverse range of backgrounds want bold, fair and comprehensive action. Make sure you are being heard.
