Join Tiakina te Taiao.

Tiakina te Taiao | TEU’s Climate Action Network has a vision involving all parts of the tertiary education sector playing their roles for a sustainable and equitable zero carbon Aotearoa. We see a Te Tiriti-centred future where all facets of the tertiary sector act with cognisance of climate change and climate justice and where TEU ensures our institutions’ practices are sustainable and that together we work with our sector, professions, and communities for just transitions.

We are keen for there to be a sector-wide strategy around climate action and we have raised this with the Tertiary Edcucation Commission. At the end of this month, TEU will meet with TEC and the Ministry of Education to discuss our vision and the steps we believe need to be taken to progress it.

TEC has informed us that sustainability and carbon neutrality has already been raised with tertiary providers in a Letter of Expectations, as well as their investment plan guidance.

Members of Tiakina te Taiao will be discussing and planning what we want and what our asks will be of the TEC at our next meeting on 14th June, 4:00p.m.
