Urs Signer, is standing for Taranaki Regional Council and is talking to farmers about greenies, social justice activists, iwi and farmers working together on Just Transition, to help farmers adapt via regenerative ag and diversification. This is exactly the kind of person we need on regional councils.
He’s funny, articulate, and presents a good opening door for how all of us can deal with climate change regeneratively. Great speaker to watch. Short speech then Q and A.
Hattip for the vid to Robert Guyton, another good man, who you can vote for if you live in Southland.
