Our climate future today

Published: Mon 18 Mar 2019 11:57 AM
Auckland Council’s three-day Climate Symposium opened this morning with a minute’s silence in respect for our Muslim communities following Friday’s tragic terror attacks in Christchurch.
“On Friday morning we heard the global call from 1.5 million young people to act to save our planet.”
“By Friday afternoon, New Zealand quickly realised that we needed to act to save ourselves – from discrimination, intolerance and racism.”
“Today as we gather to discuss action on climate change, I call on you all to use this same sentiment to act for good in every aspect of our society.”
“To be resolute to act to create a better future for our children, for Auckland and New Zealand.” – Councillor Penny Hulse, Chair Environment and Community Committee
The Climate Symposium brings together international and national climate and resilience experts and regional stakeholders to discuss and plan development of a Climate Action Plan for Auckland.
