Join Auckland Conversations as we discuss the challenges we face as a city to get climate ready

Auckland Exposed? Truth, consequences and aspirations for a climate-ready city

In collaboration with New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC)

Join international sustainability expert Matt Petersen and panellist as they discuss the challenges we face as a city to get climate ready - and what it could mean for us if we don't.

How climate-ready is Auckland? 
New Zealand is a truly desirable destination. It’s clean and green, people make money launching home-grown rockets and creating movies, and we see ourselves as fun and fair. But how true is our perception of being green, innovative and fair? Are we really ready for climate change or are we in for a big surprise? 

Is our growth and change a liability?
Auckland is growing and changing but this doesn’t need to be a liability.  Instead, it’s an opportunity to harness new energy, ideas and collective power to transition to an Auckland that is cleaner and fairer. Other cities and nations have shown that GDP, population, climate readiness – even happiness – can rise rapidly while emissions fall sharply.
