Toitū Tahua - Investing in Climate Solutions

"I go home and people say we haven’t caused this [climate change]. But we emit 3x our share of global emissions. It’s not good enough to say we don’t need to do anything… With iwi Māori leadership and philanthropic-public-private sector partnerships, we can set an example of what can be achieved collectively."

Climate Change Commission Deputy Chairperson and Ngāi Tahu Tribal Parliament Kaiwhakahaere Lisa Tumahai set the theme at the Investing in Climate Solutions event at Novotel Auckland Airport on 26 April 2023.

Some of the key 🔑 messages we heard:
☀ We need to make a shift
☀ Get behind the kaupapa
☀ Let's create degrees of connection between people
☀ Use your leadership even in a small way to ACHIEVE the IMPOSSIBLE
☀ Highlight and amplify the indigenous voices
☀ Don't be afraid to ask for help
☀ Understand your carbon footprint - MEASURE
☀ Imagine the world in 30 years
