1. CODE OF CONDUCT

1.1.     Auckland Climate Festival is designed to support Tāmaki and its communities who care deeply about the environment and its relationship and connection to our wellbeing. Aucklanders are increasingly aware of the urgent need for climate action and a“ whole of society response”. Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan is the document that begins to provide direction on how Tāmaki can respond.

1.3.    All event hosts, speakers, partners and volunteers at Auckland Climate Festival are expected to adhere the following code of conduct:

1.3.1.     Auckland Climate Festival is an initiative that welcomes all voices, but we do not encourage events that benefit from the sponsorship or direct financial support of businesses, organisations or groups that are antagonistic to the need for climate action and a net-zero future. We expect event organisers to embrace the rich vibrancy and diversity of Tāmaki and its communities, and ensure climate action brings people together, emphasising climate justice, humanity and a just transition.

1.3.2.    Auckland Climate Festival is collaborative and inclusive, ambitious, and solutions focused. We ask that all events consider how they embed mātauranga Māori and Te Ao Māori worldview, and raise up the voices and actions of youth.
