Climate Change Meet-Up: Plan for October Action

Planning Meeting: Monday April 26

Local Inspiration for Global Action Day

The global Climate Change action group, 350.org, is encouraging people to take action in their own communities, raise awareness of climate issues and pressure their elected representatives to make the hard decisions about protecting our climate.

Last year, on October 24, people around the Far North took part in a global day of action for the climate and in doing so became part of the biggest global action ever mounted! Locally, this took the form of a guided walk through the Ahipara Gumlands, raising awareness of an area of unique biodiversity that faces the twin threats of climate change and encroachment from development.

This year 350.org are proposing a Global Work Party on the 10th of October. Their website has plenty of ideas of the form that could take for local groups, but how about Kaitaia coming up with something totally unique?! A meeting to plan for the October event will be held next Monday:

When: April 26, from 5.30pm.

Where: Far North Environment Centre, CBEC Building, Pukepoto Road, Kaitaia

Everyone is welcome, so bring your ideas, your aunty and a couple of neighbours!

In the meantime, check out what's happening around the world as people take charge of climate change action. In session now is the World People's Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth,  being held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, April 19 to 22, 2010.
