Subject: Join the Climate Consensus Coalition presentation to Parliament Wednesday 16 August
Hi all – Great news! After all the political convulsions in the Beehive, we finally have confirmation today that GLOBE-NZ will host the Climate Consensus Coalition Aoteraroa (CCCA) for a presentation of the Statement and Action plan we have developed.
GLOBE-NZ (which has reps from all the Parties) has invited All MPs, All Ministers, All EA/Secretaries. The Theatrette holds up to 120 so effectively the bigger the show of support we can muster the better. The presentation will be fronted by Wise Response with the support of a great line up of NGO representatives.
So this is to encourage you and/or as many others in your group to attend who are within striking distance! A larger group will reinforce the fact that we have huge support through the website. The CCCA statement is also very consistent with the recommendations from the PCE on climate action. Meeting details are as follows:
Time: Wed 16 August at 12.30 – 2.00pm (please be there in good time)
Place: Theatrette, Beehive, Executive Wing, Parliamentary Buildings, Wellington
- Introduction by GLOBE-NZ.
- Outline the rationale for, and genesis of, the CCCA and the Consensus Statement, and role of Wise Response Society Inc.
- Explain the key elements in the Consensus Statement and Action Plan
- Explain the nature and scale of support and overview of other climate initiatives
- Selected NGO representatives to clarify relationship with CCCA Statement
- Questions and discussion
- Summing up by Geoffrey Palmer
- Closure by GLOBE-NZ.
NB: Note that we need to submit the names of all persons intending to go to the meeting on Monday morning for Parliamentary Security. Essentially if you are not on the that list then you will not be able to get in.
All persons intending to support this event must provide names by 11am Monday 14 August.
Please email Dugald MacTavish firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details.
Apologies for late notice but this has been beyond our control.
This is our chance to make this a really powerful statement for Climate Change action. Please spread the word.
