Join us for a lively discussion of local climate change issues and hear about the positive action being taken by local environmental groups.

Panellists include Roger Blakeley (Greater Wellington Regional Council), Jez Partridge (Hutt City Council), Merilyn Merrit (Friends of the Waiwhetu Stream), and Ellie Craft and Duncan Ballinger (Generation Zero).

Each will give a short introduction to their work followed by a panel discussion chaired by curator Melanie Oliver. This event is part of a series of public programmes running in parallel with the current exhibition This Time of Useful Consciousness—Political Ecology Now.
