A series of evenings to inform and inspire people in the Porirua area to consider realistic ways to respond to the challenges of climate change. This initiative is aimed at the grass-roots level and is free and open to all.

On 7 March our guest speaker is Professor Martin Manning - a distinguished scientist who has been working on climate change issues for more than thirty years both nationally and internationally.

On 14 March Catherine Gibbs is an educator and social justice advocate who will use key messages on caring for our common home, using Pope Francis’ letter on ecology to the people of the world.

Finally Councillor Barbara Donaldson will provide some local context on 21 March. She is the Deputy Chair of the Greater Wellington Council and Chair of the Sustainable Transport and Regional Transport committees. She serves on several local committees linked to our Porirua harbor and environs. There will be time for questions, discussion and reflection.
