Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Sunday 27th October 2019
With a climate emergency declared in Nelson and many other places, we bring together a business leader, a researcher, a filmmaker, an activist and RNZ broadcaster Kim Hill to explore what this means in practice.
Scientists are now warning we’re barrelling headlong into the largest extinction event on earth in millions of years and, according to the IPCC, we’re less than 12 years away from not being able to undo our mistakes. How can we implement radical change and avert a catastrophe?
Join Kerensa Johnston (Chief Executive, Wakatū Incorporation), Jess Berentson-Shaw (A Matter of Fact), Ange Palmer (Two Degrees), Raven Maeder (climate justice advocate) and Kim Hill to work out how we can move beyond the era of polarised communication and into positive action.
