An evening with Dr Paul Winton, Jenny Cooper QC, Lucy Lawless & guests

Brought to you by Bike Auckland, Greater Auckland & Generation Zero

When: Monday 10 August 2020, Refreshments from 5.30pm, presentations start at 6pm.

Where: Grid AKL, Lysaght Building, 101 Pakenham St West, Wynyard Quarter.

Our city’s Climate Action Plan is ready, the clock is ticking, and the path ahead is clear: Auckland must dramatically decarbonise its transport system in just 9 years.

So how quickly can we get there?

Come and learn how New Zealand’s climate change commitments will give legal power to our advocacy and action!

  • Dr Paul Winton of The 1Point5 Project will share his analysis of the challenge of reducing transport emissions
  • Jenny Cooper QC of Lawyers for Climate Action will outline why our transport agencies are legally obliged to act now.
  • Lucy Lawless will then lead a lively panel on how climate commitments and legal obligations coalesce with strong advocacy – to create a potent context for transforming Auckland’s transport priorities, fast.

NOTE: This event is free, but will fill up fast, so RSVP here to reserve your spot!
