Māori world view essential for Zero Carbon Bill - Youth

Talisa Kupenga

Ko tā te rōpū rangatahi nānā te Ture Āhuarangi i kōkiri ki te whare pāremata, me whai wāhi ngā iwi Māori ki ngā kōwhiringa, ka mutu me whakamana hoki tēnei ture i te Tiriti o Waitangi. I tuku atu te tono a Gen Zero ki te Minita Take Āhuarangi ki a James Shaw i tēra pō.

Tuia ki te tono a Gen Zero ko te wero kia kaua ai te Kāwanatanga e hapa i tēnei kaupapa.

Ko tā Victor Komarovsky, māngai ki Gen Zero, "we ask that the Ministry of Environment officials honour this by drafting an ambitious bill, one that is comprehensive and fair and continue to work with iwi and hapu to reflect our commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi."

Nā te tū tōtara wāhi rua o te hunga kaitōrangapū me ngā mana o te rāngai, nā te aro kore hoki o te hapori ki ngā take āhuarangi, i timata ai tēnei kaupapa o Gen Zero e rua tau ki muri.

Ko tā Lisa McLaren, māngai ki Gen Zero "If one word had to describe the way Gen Zero wants the Zero Carbon Bill to look, it's ambitious. Ambitious in its green house gas targets, ambitious in the way it plans to engage with iwi and communities, ambitious in its level of transparency enabling industries to plan for the future."

Ko tā te Minita Take Āhuarangi a James Shaw "one of the things I've seen as the Minister fronting the consultation over the last few months is that New Zealanders share that ambition."

Tekau mā rima ngā hui i tū puta noa i te motu hei whakatū rautaki e noho puha haurehu-kore ai te motu i te tau rua rau rima tekau.

Ko tā Minita Shaw "there has been a very clear steer from  Māori that they certainly want their interests to be protected as a result of the Zero Carbon Bill and I think that's perfectly reasonable."

Ka mutu ngā hui hapori hei te Rāpare. I tēnei wā he iwa mano neke atu ngā tono kua tuku ki te kaupapa.
