Last week, a collaboration of climate activists and organisations across Aotearoa launched the campaign Vote for Climate, in hopes to encourage voters to prioritise the climate crisis in terms of who they vote for. The website provides a simplified guide of party climate policy, by ranking parties from best to worst in regards to their policies surrounding climate change. Currently, Te Pāti Māori and the Green Party have ranked “best”, the Labour party ranking “good”, New Zealand First ranks “bad”, and both the National Party and ACT rank “worst”. The website also lists ways for voters to get involved, by asking their local MP’s what their parties intend to do to tackle the climate crisis, and participating in the campaign.
Rosetta spoke to Jenny Sahng, Spokesperson for Vote for Climate, about the campaign and the importance of a climate election.
