Auckland’s first ever climate festival will be held from 12 to 31 October 2021. The festival is an open platform for communities, the private sector, government, youth and Māori to come together as a whole-of-society response to the climate emergency.
The festival is inspired by and modelled off the London Climate Action Week.
The Auckland Climate Festival is being supported by a range of founding partners including Auckland Council, Auckland Unlimited, the Britomart Group, Foundation North, MartinJenkins, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, No One Studio, Smash Delta, Tonkin + Taylor, Vector, Waste Management and Whakatupu Aotearoa Foundation.
A diverse programme of events is being established that will take place throughout the three-week period. Events already announced include the Climate Change and Business Conference, KangaNews-Westpac New Zealand Sustainable Finance Summit, Vector Lights in partnership with Auckland Council, a panel discussion hosted by Warren and Mahoney in partnership with Cosgroves, and workshops hosted by the Recreators and Climate Collage.
Event registration is open and those interested in organising an event can find out more here.
More events will be announced on 1 September.
