Many councils in Aotearoa New Zealand have declared a climate emergency and are working on climate mitigation plans as we speak - have YOUR say on what this will look like. A Just Transition is vital. 

Find your local council here. Explore their page, look at the plans especially around transport, waste and climate. Check submission dates and GO FOR IT!

We will  help you EVERY step of the way - email us with your questions at today. 

Local Council is where it's at!

Start with yourself. Your individual voice is what gives your submission power. Tell them who you are and what your worries are - "I support/don't support ABC because...." it only needs to be as simple as two or three sentences from the heart. 

Your words could be the ones councillors need to hear to make good decisions.

Your words could be the ones that make a difference to all our children's futures.



It's super easy - all council want to know is what you think and feel about these changes. All a submission needs is two to three sentences from you which can be in the format of "I support 30 km streets because...." 


Simple as that! Check out what whanau around the Wellington Region and beyond think about the change below - because these improvements to the safety of our streets are for everyone in our region and visitors to our city.


Click here to have your say on safer streets! Get in quick, submissions close Tuesday, 5pm 31 March.
