To the New Zealand Parliament,
We need political parties to work together and look beyond election cycles.
We need you to take meaningful action on climate change by passing a new law to establish a climate commission, set a long term goal, and give Aotearoa New Zealand a plan to get there: the Zero Carbon Act.
When Kiwis from all walks of life with all kinds of different political ideas sign on together, we can make change possible.
It's time for New Zealand to get its act together when it comes to climate change. Climate action has been a political football for too long. Now, we have a chance to fix that.
That's why we're standing shoulder to shoulder with Oxfam, Forest & Bird, and - last but not least - youth organisation Generation Zero to call for all political parties to support the fairest, most ambitious Zero Carbon Act possible - to put climate action beyond politics.
We're not just writing to one minister or the government, but sending a petition from all of us to to every Member of Parliament. As the government introduces the new law we've been asking for, we are urging all political parties to back the fairest, boldest law possible.
That's because climate change is bigger than politics, so we need a plan that will stick.
Climate change is bigger than politics
Climate change is bigger than politics, so we're calling all political parties to come to the table and pass a new law to get New Zealand on track for a safe climate future, powered by 100% renewable, clean energy: the Zero Carbon Act.
