Over the weekend more than 20 POW Volunteers gathered in Queenstown. We learnt more about POW and HEAPS about climate science and policy. We also got outside with some biking hiking and climbing. Many Many thanks to all the volunteers who participated and especially big thanks to those who presented and helped with the organising: Antonia Cristi, Todd Redpath and Greg Bodeker. Dominic Thorn and Rachel Cooper for a great overview of climate policy, Jana McCall and Sam Lee for the tasty food.
Some key takeaways were:
- There are lots of other people just like you out there who really care and together we can make a difference.
- For every 500m we drive, 1kg of ice melts from a glacier :(
- The ocean and phytoplankton are WAY more important than we thought.
- In 50 years there might not be any snow falling at Cardrona
- We add a unique, different voice at the policy level and the government doesn't hear from the outdoor industry very often.
Stay tuned for our 2022 camp.
