All advertisers should be compelled to include climate change/carbon footprint/emissions info in all ads. This should be monitored and enforced by a crack unit in the Advertising Standards Authority, or someone else.  Car ads MUST be included in this as it needs to become the key driver of vehicle selection, but the footprint of the cheap bananas advertisedby supermarkets must also be disclosed.  This idea would make the carbon footprint of every product a normal part of everyone’s...

We've been on here for a month or so, but we've got no idea how climate change is being communicated in Auckland - which is terrifying given the breadth of our collective industries and interest areas within climate change! Can someone fill us in and then we can have a more informed discussion under that challenge.

How does our weekend road use/carbon footprint compare to weekdays? More or less? Lets find out and then look into how to make the changes we need. Obviously malls, shopping centres and recreational facilities are big draw cards for travel in the weekend... what can we do to: do it together, do it less, do it better.

I reckon a great series of public discourse events between now and July would be great a chance to get Auckland talking. About climate action. Energetic. Invested. Public. Sharing. Inspire. Inspiring. Inspire us to talk.

Gather sustainable funding from at least 3 seperate sources - Auckland Council, Government, Foundation North, Tindall, others in the public, private and philanthropic sphere to create the role of PRINCIPAL CLIMATE CHANGE ACTIVATOR/ADVISOR FOR AUCKLAND. They must be employed by a collective Board, and we should consider moving toward a collective impact model of some sort in which the role is supported by an organisation in a backbone role, ready to support the person and the role as...

"This year Auckland is hosting the first ever carbon nuetral America's Cup" - thats the headline that could fly around the world. What we need? - An event plan to ensure America's Cup 2021 is NET GREEN. What a moment in history that would be. All that technology on the boats, all that global coverage: surely we can make a a truly leading move on the climate change front through this global, leading edge event? Who's on board? Auckland Council largely has control over how that event...

Bike subsidies on retail prices. Lets talk about that. Auckland Council's annual budget is something like $4B.  $1M would provide a substantive subsidy on bike purchases. Something like 5,000 subsidies of $200. $2M = 5,000 of $400, or 10,000 of $200. I know thats pretty complex math, but there are things we can spend Auckland money on that would make a difference. I guess we could also spend it on some consultants to provide options on driveway maintenance in Remuera. Time to...

Create a dedicated fund for vital technology development, innovation and promotion. I'd say solar, cycle power (cycling more, and generating sustainable emergy from human cycle power), and water collection & cleaning straight off the bat. Whoa is developing new ideas in this area, how are they supported, and what do they need to succeed? Cause we really need them to succeed...

Let's get behind the landmark global climate action on March 15. Let's gather, talk, communicate to leaders. What is the function of the public sector: to effectively manage public and democratic mattes for our society... Let's make sure they know we want change in the administration of public matters... change so that our agenda is led by climate change action.  Let's show ourselves - Auckland - that we recognise that climate change matters... #internationalyearofclimateaction Are...
