Auckland Climate Festival (Te Ahurei Āhuarangi o Tāmaki Makaurau) kicks off this week! This month-long festival is held every year in Tāmaki Makaurau. This is an opportunity for us all to come together as a community to celebrate and accelerate climate action. Read on to discover how you can join the action.
In its third year running, Aucklanders can engage in climate action through attending a diverse range of events, initiatives and activations taking place all across the region. The festival’s programme is co-curated with communities, mana whenua, rangatahi, the private sector, advocacy groups and government as a whole-of-society response to the climate emergency.
