About A slick new website for the Zero Carbon Act!

Project 2017-03-17 18:07:14 +1300

UPDATE: Thanks to all our wonderful pledges so far! We're so close to reaching our goal, and any extra funds raised will only help to make our campaign MORE AWESOME. We'll put the money towards t-shirts and other Zero Carbon Act merchandise, and on running events around the country. So if you haven't pledged yet - now is the time! Every bit helps :)

========

The climate crisis is growing more urgent by the day, yet our emissions continue to increase. We need a new law to put New Zealand on track to zero carbon by 2050: a Zero Carbon Act.

Generation Zero is a nationwide organisation of young people who advocate for a future beyond fossil fuels. The Zero Carbon Act campaign is our biggest, boldest national effort yet!

We've been drafting this law ourselves, with help from experts and collaborators, and we’re almost ready to share the blueprint with the world.

And now, we need a high quality website that can serve as the primary communication tool for the Act, as we work to build a public mandate for cross-party support.

We're working with NZ web design firm BlueTwist to build the site, but we don't have quite enough in our budget to cover the costs. Help us raise the extra funds needed to ensure we can share the Zero Carbon Act far and wide!

About the Zero Carbon Act:

This Act is inspired by the UK's 2008 Climate Change Act, but we've put a lot of consideration into New Zealand's distinctive issues, such as our high level of emissions from agriculture. We believe it's a proposal that all political parties can get behind.

The People Behind A slick new website for the Zero Carbon Act!

Genz logo 07 Generation Zero Project admin

Climate change is the challenge of our generation, and young people are the inheritors of humanity's response to climate change. For that reason, Generation Zero was founded with the central purpose of providing solutions for New Zealand to cut carbon pollution through smarter transport, liveable cities & independence from fossil fuels.

We are witnessing a global shift away from polluting fossil fuels, and as New Zealanders, we are fortunate enough to possess an abundance of opportunities to make this transition.

We can power our homes, our industries and our economy with clean safe energy. We can build more liveable cities with better housing and transport choices. We can move beyond fossil fuels and create a safer and healthier nation by doing so.

It is time for New Zealanders to unite together for a safe, thriving, zero carbon Aotearoa.
