Climate Change

Welcome to the Climate Change home on our website. The content here will expand and grow as we increase our focus and capability in this important area. 

Below you will find links to information aimed at helping our communities take action towards mitigating climate change. These resources were developed jointly with Carterton District Council for release during Global Climate Change Week (14-20 October 2019). The informatin can be viewed online or downloaded as individual PDF handouts.

This is just the beginning. The two councils will release a more in-depth list of actions they will be taking in their daily operations once the Climate Change Strategy is released mid-2020.
