Cut the small talk! We don’t want to talk about the weather, we want to talk about change. Climate change.

As New Zealand navigates future horizons, we are gazing at a point of vanishing stability – a point where the boat sea-ses to stay afloat.

But, with the consensus of industry, government and citizens (…and a good pair of sea legs) we have the opportunity to drive change and oversee the global transition into a low-emissions economy. What we need now is a strategy. #climatestrategyNZ

The Institute invites you to join us and eight speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds. The speakers will be discussing a number of topics around climate change risks and opportunities, as well as answering live feed questions from the audience. Our intention is to see what a national climate strategy might look like. We want to enable a safe space for open discussion and a collaborative experience between industry, government, citizens, and most importantly, YOUth.

Let's create a sense of urgency and make some noise!

Speakers include:

Chlöe Swarbrick MP
Adrian Orr
Conal Smith
Dr Anita Wreford
Roger Dennis
Dame Dr Claudia Orange
Dr Carwyn Jones
Aaron Maniam
Wendy McGuinness

Note: The Wellbeing Budget is launching on the same night!
