The Climate Justice Taranaki Just Transitions Conference

On 15th June 2019 Climate Justice Taranaki hosted a one day conference.

The Just Transition Summit organised by the central government was top-down and profit-driven. To ensure our transition to a low emission society is fit for purpose and socially just, the community must drive it.

Their page for the conference is here.
