Restoring Aotearoa – a recovery for people and planet

Dear Prime Minister

Last month, the Government made a courageous decision to place the country in lockdown to eliminate COVID-19 and save lives. This has had a significant impact on the economy, on jobs and on our communities and the Government is seeking proposals to help New Zealand recover.

New Zealand can create jobs and transform the economy and also tackle the other crises facing our country: climate change, decline in native species, poor freshwater quality, and stresses in our ocean world.
