Solidarity with Sarah - High Court Climate Challenge
Student, Sarah Thomson, is taking the Climate Change Minister to court over the government's lack of action on climate change.
Sarah is inviting people to come to the Wellington High Court to stand with her, so let's show our support! We will gather from 9.15 Monday 26th June.
Monday, June 26 at 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Wellington High Court, Molesworth St, Wellington
The government's target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 11% below 1990 levels is well below what is needed - and ignores the huge cost of failing to act. Sarah filed papers with the High Court in 2015 ahead of the Paris Climate talks - and on Monday 26th June, the case will finally be heard. Sarah hopes at the very least the court will order that the government target is unlawful and needs to be reviewed. The case will run from Monday 26th to Wednesday 28th June. We are welcome to attend over this time too.
