Mayor Brown pushing city into global climate action
Auckland Mayor Len Brown says the city has lessons it can share with other cities round the world at next week’s Climate Change Conference in Paris.
The mayor has come under from two councillors for attending the United Nations’ hui, along with environment committee chair Wayne Walker, city ambassador Sir Bob Harvey and chief sustainability officer John Mauro.
He says Auckland has applied to be part of the C40 network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change, and he will be speaking to that part of the summit.
On Saturday, the People’s Climate March will be held around the country, allowing people to voice their support for a strong stance of carbon emissions reduction to come out of the Paris Summit.
The Auckland march rallies at Albert Park at 11 Saturday morning.
