The Climate Debate organised by the WWF.

We know it’s 100% possible to unlock a safe climate future for all New Zealanders. Climate action is bigger than politics – but it’s election season right now. Will political parties come together to set a course for a 100% renewable energy, zero carbon future? Or will climate action remain a political football?

WWF-New Zealand’s Climate Debate is your chance to find out.

  • What: This election’s big climate debate.
  • When: 7pm on 19 September
  • Where:  AMRF Auditorium (Lecture Theatre 1) in the University of Auckland Grafton Campus, 85 Park Rd, Grafton, Auckland
  • Who: Megan Woods (Labour), James Shaw (Greens), Carrie Stoddart-Smith (Māori Party), Denis O’Rourke (NZ First), Damien Light (United Future), Teresa Moore (TOP), and a speaker TBC from National – all MCed by business journalist Rod Oram

Brought to you in partnership with Oxfam New Zealand and Fossil Free University of Auckland, the Debate is your chance to learn about the parties’ climate policies – and ask your political representatives the questions that matter to you. We already have an exciting mixture of speakers from almost all of New Zealand’s key political parties coming along, just days before the election.

Business journalist Rod Oram will be your MC on the night, asking all the candidates the questions that matter for Aotearoa’s climate future.

Livestream here.

    Well done all;

    We need to discuss much more about the real elephant in the room now!!!

    As we all slide to a climate change disaster, with an uncertain future we all see clearly comming as we experience the daily effects of a very wet wild stormy climate that has now become the norm in our lives.

    When we see even the horticulture tractors are now unable to plow their fields in this persistant rainy wet un-seasonale weather we all now have come to see.

    Floods, tornados, hurricanes, and constant hig wins are now the orm with record rainfall levels we are doomed it we dont act now.

        Good as Weka we will watch this show as I sent a copy of the event to ‘Carol Hirschfeld’ (head of content Manager RNZ)

        And since then tonights climate change event has been mentioned several times already since nine to noon with Kathyn Ryan with Rod Oram,
        midday RNZ news so could be a large audience there lets hope.

          I’m glad Oram is MC-ing, that should make it a bit more interesting.

            Here is a good debate Genter, Parker, Peters amongst many. The main debate opening minutes is quite funny and JAG saying she is seating next to Trump was very funny. Thought the Mod was good, but hey I know the man well, enjoy!

    Lying National says they have spent $6 billion on rail that is a great big fat lie period!!!!

    They have spent 2.4 billion on rail total and have paid nothing for regional rail services and upgredes for several years, infact they have eagerly closed down four regional rail links that used to send export paroducts to ports in other regions so now they all carry this export freight by road.

    Most of the $2.4 Billion was spent on auckland commmuter rail, wellengton and Christchurch.

    National lied again to NZ tonight.

    NZ First have a rail policy that is the very best cast iron wayto save our rail in all NZ Regions called ‘Rail of National Importance.'(RONI)
