The climate crisis is escalating in severity. Communities across Aotearoa have increasingly been feeling the devastating consequences of Government inaction on climate change first hand, from Cyclone Gabrielle in the north to severe droughts in the south.
This year has already driven home that we need urgent climate action, and we’re on a tight deadline to achieve the emissions reductions needed.
Right now, we have the opportunity to shift to a better, more connected society. A society where nature is protected and people thrive.
But this is only possible if our politicians stop delaying action, and start treating this crisis as a crisis.
This is our chance to turn things around, and make that future a reality.
That’s why this year, we’re calling for people across the motu to use their voice to demand urgent climate action.
Greenpeace, Forest and Bird, and Oxfam have teamed up to create a collective climate action campaign, called Climate Shift, centering around a ten point plan for Government action.
Our plan is guided by three key themes:
- Real emissions reductions
- Supporting frontline communities
- Restoring & rewilding nature
This is a climate crisis. We need genuine climate action from the New Zealand Government, which gives effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and is guided by hapū exercising their tino rangatiratanga.
Join our call for urgent climate action, and sign on to support a Climate Shift.
