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.
