Asia-Pacific Greens Unite

Climate Keynote by James Shaw, New Zealand Green Party

Green Party Co-leader James Shaw’s speech to the Asia-Pacific Green Federation Congress

It was exactly two weeks ago today that I gave my first speech as Co-leader of the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand.

I deliberately made that speech about climate change - about the need to build common cause on climate change, about how it’s our responsibility as politicians to talk to each other, rather than past each other, to come together and take ambitious action on climate change.

International Women’s Day is a call to recognise inequality

As a Member of Parliament human rights is the fundamental lens through which I make decisions. And it is the deepest responsibility I hold for New Zealand, for our global family and for future generations. International Women’s Day is a call for action to us all. Starting simply, perhaps, by asking oneself “what is my personal relationship with inequality? Where do I experience it? Why do I care, or not? What can I do?” These are sincere questions.
