The autumn edition of Our Wellington - Tō Tātou Pōneke covers the period 1 April to 15 June 2022.
This issue focuses on the climate emergency and how we can respond with a collective effort to make measurable change. Urgent action is needed to make sure we more than halve our emissions by 2030 and become a net zero carbon capital by 2050, as laid out in our Te Atakura First to Zero plan (466KB PDF).
We celebrate local skateboarder Mel Warner and the many positive aspects of skating, and share a story about our 10-year plan to create a citywide network of bike and scooter routes and safer places to walk.
The autumn magazine has info on how you and your whānau can reduce food waste as a household and has tips on how to enjoy an eco-Easter with less rubbish.
We showcase some of our climate action team members and share a sneak peek of the new Frank Kitts playground upgrade.
The magazine also has a story about our Te Kāinga programme, which is creating more affordable apartments for Pōneke’s essential workers, and news and information about upcoming events, exhibitions, and Council meetings.
