Generation Zero invites you to dinner

17 March 2014

Generation Zero’s leaders invite you to join them for a special dinner, where you can learn how you can support their campaigns by becoming a Friend for the Future.

Generation Zero would like to invite you to a unique, sustainably produced dinner with renowned international guest speakers and the leaders of Generation Zero, where you will have the opportunity to learn more about their vision for a New Zealand beyond fossil fuels. The dinner will be held on Wednesday 26 March 2014, from 6.30pm in the Titoki Room at 545 Parnell Road.

Generation Zero was founded in 2011 to cut carbon pollution through smart transport, liveable cities and independence from fossil fuels. The organisation represents 10,000 supporters and has had a real impact on political and cultural discourse across New Zealand, through lobbying, policy work and events.

Generation Zero is focussing its efforts on keeping New Zealand’s emissions in line with the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recommendations. To achieve this, it aims to empower leaders with a mandate to make the right decisions, in order to limit global temperature rise to two degrees Celsius.

The organisation intends to represent the voice of current and future generations in these elections, by putting climate change and a clean energy future on the political agenda.

 Speakers include Charles Ehrhart, leading international consultant and former leader of CARE International’s response to climate change across 83 countries, who will discuss how private-public relationships can be cultivated to establish climate change solutions. 

Rick Boven, Director of Stakeholder Strategies NZ, will be joined by Sudhvir Singh, current director at Generation Zero.

Chef Ben Barton from POPdining will share the stories behind a locally sourced, sustainably produced meal, served with Yealands wine.

Kern Mangan-Walker, Fundraising Director at Generation Zero, says that the dinner event is aimed at people interested in supporting Generation Zero. “While there is no cost to attend, we hope that dinner guests will feel inspired to support us financially this year,” he says. 

Join them for this free event and learn how you can support Generation Zero in its 2014 campaign.

Spaces are limited to 30 people. Please RSVP to Sam Dyson by Wednesday 19 March.
