Seeing climate change through Covid-19
Jo Hendy, Chief Executive of the Climate Change Commission, sees hope for addressing climate change from New Zealand’s response to the COVID-19 crisis.
“Reaching net zero is possible. It just involves developing a collective new normal,”
“We are a country of innovators and problem solvers, and a close connection to our environment is part of our national identity. Responding to COVID-19 gives us a unique chance to accelerate New Zealand’s work to meet our climate goals.”
“We have generations of New Zealanders calling for changes to how our country functions to address climate change.”
