We know it’s 100% possible to unlock a safe climate future for all New Zealanders. That's part of why we say climate action is bigger than politics – but it’s election season right now. Will political parties come together to set a course for a 100% renewable energy, zero carbon future, or will climate
action remain a political football?
WWF-New Zealand’s Climate Debate is your chance to find out.
WHEN: 7 pm on 19 September
WHERE: AMRF Auditorium, University of Auckland Grafton Campus, 85 Park Rd, Grafton, Auckland
WHAT: The big Climate Debate for this election
Brought to you in partnership with Oxfam New Zealand and Fossil Free University of Auckland, the Debate is your chance to learn about their climate policies – and ask your political representatives the questions that matter to you. We already have an exciting mixture of speakers from almost all of New Zealand’s key political parties coming along, just days before the election.
Business journalist Rod Oram will be your MC on the night, asking all the candidates the questions that matter for Aotearoa’s climate future.
So far, we have Damian Light - UnitedFuture from United Future, Carrie Stoddart-Smith 苏嘉莉 from the Māori Party, Megan Woods - MP for Wigram from the New Zealand Labour Party, James Shaw MP from the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand, Denis O'Rourke from New Zealand First, and Teresa Moore from The Opportunities Party confirmed!
We are still waiting for confirmation from National on who will be representing them. ACT have given their apologies.
