Back by popular demand!
Getting the Zero Carbon Amendment Bill as good as it can be. Submissions due by 16th July.
Following the success of our first event, we are offering the second workshop due to public demand. Looking for something you can easily do in response to the Climate Emergency? Join ACE for a free presentation and workshop offering background information to help you in preparing and lodging your own submission on the Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment Bill.
The Bill is pioneering but contentious legislation. It’s critically significant, both in NZ and globally, as a world leader in targeting the Paris Agreement’s more ambitious 1.5°C limit to global overheating. (The IPCC’s special report in 2018 stressed the importance of ambitious targets. We must help get it right.)
Join us for a short, informative talk, followed by a chance to ask questions, and then to discuss your submission.
Enjoy the Earth Hub's warm atmosphere! Be enriched by great company, an inspiring event, and the chance to chill out afterwards. The event is free but donations on the night will be most appreciated!
When: Monday 8th July. Talk 5.30 - 6.30pm followed by Q & A 6.30 - 7.00 pm (doors open 5.00 pm for informal chat).
