NZNO wants to protect our world from climate damage, because climate change is a justice issue and a health issue too. By taking action on climate change now we can not only protect our environment, but improve our quality of life.
Along with many other prominent New Zealanders, NZNO's President and Kaiwhakahaere signed an open letter to the Prime Minister which pledges support for the New Zealand Government to end oil and gas exploration now, as a vital step in addressing climate change.

NZNO members supported the People's Climate March held in November 2015 to ask for urgent action to protect global health, security and life. Shorter working hours, more active transport, less time commuting, more time for family, fresh local food, secure jobs and cleaner cities are all things people actually want!
The People's Climate Marches were the first truly global push for a safer future, but they won't be the last. The people's movement for radically better economy is just starting.
