Who will help us shape a climate-smart future?

Let’s be honest: local elections seem tedious, bureaucratic and complicated. But they are also our chance to elect representatives who can steer New Zealand towards a healthy, thriving, low carbon future.

Generation Zero has been working hard all around the country to survey candidates running for local and regional councils about their views on a range of issues related to climate change.

We've created these simple scorecards to show you quickly and clearly which candidates can champion solutions to climate change at a local level, and who might be less than ideal. So simply click on your region, find your ward, and don't forget to vote!
