Kia Ora Daniel,
It's school holidays and the days are long. It's still kind of winter so everyone is busy squishing in some last minute adventures on snow but it's also spring and some days it's summer so everyone is also busy squishing in bike rides and hikes. It's been a busy month for POW too and our climate advocacy. We've made submissions on:
- The COVID-19 Response (Management Measures) Legislation Bill, which is proposed to delay the implementation of the Zero Carbon Bill until May 2022.
- The QLDC housing strategy. Advocating for more housing options, including high density housing which allows residents to live without the need for a car and improves public transport access.
We've also been in touch with MP's who are listening to you. We've sent so many emails and now we're connecting in person. POW volunteers in Wanaka met with Jacqui Dean, MP for the Waitaki district today. Volunteers in Queenstown will be meeting with Joesph Mooney, MP for Southland. If you're keen to meet up with your MP let us know!
