Big related crises

Let’s make a path forward together!


Converging Crises

Global warming is coming at us, bringing a tangle of interrelated crises.  These could worsen suddenly and soon.

Like it or not, we’re facing big changes in how we live. Let’s make this by design, not disaster! More


The single most important way of avoiding catastrophic warming is to end greenhouse emissions – in rich countries like NZ by 2030.

This can only be done by a major re-set of our society.

It’s doable. Countries do respond when faced with dire emergencies. Read our Summary of Solutions.

Let’s get these ideas into the 2023 election

Let’s build a coalition to put forward a platform of these solutions.

A wero/challenge to political candidates.

A pathway to survival for all of us together. More


Centuries of domination and exploitation of land, sea and people have brought our planetary home to an existential catastrophe. We acknowledge with grateful respect the generations of knowledge-bearing people, including Tangata Whenua, who despite hardship and loss have resolutely sustained their interconnections with Te Taiao and their responsibility to it.

Ka nui a mātou mihi ki a rātou!!

We believe efforts to minimise and roll back the unfolding catastrophe will be stronger if the best available minds from both Tiriti partners are working in concert.

With humility and willingness to listen and learn, we submit this draft list of suggestions as a potential rallying point in the hope of drawing together a collective of diverse but like-minded groups.
