Generation Zero wants NZ to be zero carbon

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 30/06/2016

Youth organisation Generation Zero is drafting a law committing New Zealand to being a zero carbon country by 2050.

"Climate change is here and we are running out of time," Generation Zero said.

"For years our governments have got away with setting meaningless targets and avoiding real action."

A group of Generation Zero members announced their plan outside parliament, carrying huge zeroes and a scroll depicting the proposed Act.

It will be a legally binding framework requiring governments to implement policies to meet the target.

"We will work to get all political parties to support it and pass it through parliament," Generation Zero said.
