“The concept of radical collaboration means coming together across disparate, but engaged, domains in ways that are often unfamiliar or possibly uncomfortable to member organizations and individuals in order to identify and solve problems together, to achieve more together than we could separately.”
- Nancy Y McGovern (2018)
The time for collaborative climate action is now. Major shifts and structural changes are required, including how Auckland grows and develops, how we get around and how we power our homes and businesses. A challenge this significant requires sectors and individuals to work together, and work differently, to enable a just transition to a low carbon, resilient future.
Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan is a long-term approach to climate action for the Auckland region. It sets out eight priority action areas to deliver our goals to reduce emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
Te Tāruke-ā-Tawhiri was developed with Aucklanders for all Aucklanders and takes a deeply cultural narrative that is embedded in this place – Tāmaki Makaurau.
It calls for a change in our response to climate change, re-framing, re-imagining, and re-setting the current system, and a shift from a human-centred approach to an ecological-centred approach given our symbiotic relationships with the natural environment.
Our response to climate change is the collective responsibility of all individuals and organisations in Auckland and critically this response requires collective action and radical collaboration.
