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, a youth-led organisation, 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 greater housing and transport choices to attract the best and brightest to New Zealand. We can move beyond fossil fuels and create a safer and healthier nation by doing so.

These solutions will not come from one minority, one political party, or one ideology. These solutions come from real New Zealanders, from all backgrounds joining together under a central vision.

It is time for New Zealand to step up, act responsibly and secure a safe thriving zero carbon Aotearoa.

    Niall Robertson,
    Thank you for your reply, Niall, I think the only thing I can do at this point is refer you back to this one comment…
    and hope that you can understand and follow that science. It’s pretty easy to understand…. probably even Greta would be able to think it through.
    If you’re of the opinion that you don’t trust that comment, or the validity of even where you read it… have a read of this exchange between myself and David Arthur, in this small thread, in The Conversation…the blog where all the Universities unite, at taxpayers expense, to keep up the “climate change” myth…..
    This thread should further clarify the science for you… enjoy the read…
    Sky Dragon Slayers etc etc.

    Firstly Grant Mack. You are a decidedly head in the sand ludite. In this day and age, most people with an IQ above 72 should understand the science of climate change. I have read some of your science and I agree with a lot of the comments following it. Unless you can show or model your science, it is not real science. Another give away is your angry “in the real world” comments, which usually indicate a concrete thinker and someone that may not detect things that may be a little counter-intuitive. You need to do more study. Good luck. Secondly to generation zero, congratulations on your stand regarding climate change. Keep up the good fight, it is in your best interests!

    You young people need to realise that you’re looking at the biggest scientific hoax, mistake, scam in human history. Start here….
    Further down in that thread, this comment clarifies the LACK of any “greenhouse effect” in Earth’s atmosphere…. https://thestandard.org.nz/farrar-peddles-climate-change-denial-nonsense/#comment-1521081
    And in this thread, discover that adding more CO2 to the atmosphere, actually has a very slight COOLING effect….
    Following out my links, make sure you see this comment….

    So enjoy the read. We can all breathe a lot easier now, so this is extremely good news for you, at Generation Zero, and your future children.

    Wishing you all, the very best for the future,
    Sky Dragon Slayer’s Chief Public Relations Officer.

    I don’t see much about who generation zero actually is here….? Tell me, for instance, who was the generation zero luminary that people on Facebook are talking about who told an audience member at the Fickling Centre function this evening to “Shut the fuck up.”? And how, exactly, does this serve climate change activism? What was this person doing on stage? Were they some kind of expert? Or, perhaps, simply self entitled or a privileged simpleton?

    Congratulations to the younger generation for caring about our future and being active about initiating change. Congratulations also to the two young women who wrote the excellent opinion article today in the Christchurch Press about the St Asaph St cycleway and the pressing need to provide alternative transport options to make our city centres function better for everyone, not just motor cars often with just one person inside them. In a democracy our opinions do matter, but for this to happen we need to express them as eloquently as we are able.
