Every day we are reminded of the increasing severity that the impacts of climate change have on Aotearoa and the world. 

Globally, leading scientists show us very clear evidence that our future generations will be living in a vastly different and difficult planet. Why can’t we treat climate change as an emergency crisis in the same way we dealt with the pandemic?  

Join Jack Tame as he brings together politician Chlöe Swarbrick, political scientist Bronwyn Hayward, and indigenous activist Tiana Jakicevich to interrogate the status of our global warming response, and the urgency required of our immediate action.
