Conference on Climate Protection

When: Friday, September 25, 2015 - 9.00am - 6.00pm
Where: Legislative Council Chamber, Parliament

Green Party co-leader James Shaw and Green Party MP Kennedy Graham host a one-day climate change conference in Parliament.

The purpose of the conference is to explore two climate goals

  1.        An ambitious domestic emissions target for New Zealand
  2.        Within an appropriate share of the global carbon budget

These goals are a requirement for every country.  As we approach the Paris climate conference in December, we need to make sure that New Zealand is doing what is expected of it.

A research paper, prepared by Green Global Affairs spokesperson, Dr Kennedy Graham, will form the basis for the conference.

Expert panels will explore the two concepts – National Responsibility Level and Domestic Abatement Potential.

A cross-party political panel will conclude the day’s discussions.

The conference is open to all who wish to attend, and we would be delighted to see you there. RSVPs are essential. Please rsvp to keli.yen@parliament.govt.nz by 18 September 2015.
