A new global study has suggested that climate anxiety amongst young people is widespread, and that many believe Governments are not treating climate change as an emergency. 

This follows the Government announcing a five month extension on its deadline to publish the Emissions Reduction Plan, which will set out how New Zealand will meet its climate targets. 

Founder of Parents for Climate Aotearoa, Alicia Hall is calling for the Government to respond to the Climate emergency with the same urgency they have to the COVID-19 pandemic. Jessica spoke to Hall about her role as a parent in acting against climate change.
