Tēnā koutou, Tēnā koutou, Tēnā koutou katoa.


A brief history of climate change


What a summer! It’s been hot, even here in Wellington. All over the country, green fields have turned a golden brown, rivers have dried up or slowed to a trickle, and, unfortunately for our farmers and for our native plants and animals, the threat of drought now hangs heavy over the land.

On 25 January, Syriza won Greece’s parliamentary election with 36 percent of the votes. That translates into 149 out of the 300 seats in the Greek Parliament, including 50 bonus seats for being the largest party.

This signifies what may become a shift in fiscal and monetary policy across Europe and beyond.

Cleaner, cheaper power for our schools.

The Green Party has a comprehensive plan for cleaner, cheaper power for all New Zealanders. This extends to our kids. 

We will help schools reduce their power bills by investing $20 million into solar PV systems in schools, allowing schools to benefit from cheaper, cleaner power. 

Schools' power bills are too high. Our policy will let them save money on electricity - money which can be invested directly into teaching and learning instead.
