These fun, informative sessions are perfect for people who care about the environment but aren’t sure how to take action. Starting with the basics, you will learn the science behind climate change and what you can do about it. 

This decade is critical for our planet. We must halve global emissions by 2030, to safeguard humanity from the worst effects of climate change and to fulfill New Zealand’s goal to reach net-zero by 2050. Let us help you form your action plan.
