The time has come for public discussion and pressure on political parties for a pro-active government approach to the climate change emergency. The rise of Greenhouse gases has been measured in Wellington for half a century while projections remain scary. The market approach to reducing emissions has been underwhelming, the post Covid world presents an open window for new approaches and the world is looking for inspiration beyond their disappointing leaders. Alison and Andre will present a comprehensive approach with promising potential projects and outline a proposed government structure, along with the severity of the situation and how that corresponds to human rights. Alison Cole is a human rights lawyer who has worked for the UN International Criminal Court as a War Crimes Investigator, was a specialist advisor on Human rights for the Inquiry into Operation Burnham and established the community group www.asiapacificjimai.org focused on building youth partnerships for climate justice in the Asia-Pacific region. Andre de Groot is a structural engineer with a wide variety of experience across New Zealand and Canada. He has wide interests including urban design, sustainability, seismic engineering, religion, organisational form and social democracy and has worked for two successor organisations of the Ministry of Works.

Matika Hawaiki: The Indigenous Challenge to AUKUS in Aotearoa - July 2023
Created 01/08/2023 - Papers & Presentations - 153 visits
Nicky Hager, Arama Rata and Marco de Jong will discuss the above topic on Thursday 13 July in Wellington at 2/57 Willis Street, starting at 5:30pm. They ask what New Zealand stands to lose by abandoning a Pacific-led and independent foreign policy in favour of colonial associations and by choosing defence over diplomacy. Marco de Jong is a Samoan New Zealander, and a Pacific historian. He has recently completed a doctorate at the University of Oxford on the history of the environmental movement in the Pacific Islands with a particular focus on anti-nuclearism and climate change. Outside of research, he has worked in civil society organisations and independent think-tanks advocating for a progressive, demilitarised foreign policy for Aotearoa to advance a Free and Independent Pacific. Across this work, and in the context of entwined ecological and political crises, his firm belief is that there is power in stories which demonstrate Indigenous peoples' commitment to environmental justice in perpetuity. Dr Arama Rata belongs to Ngāruahine, Taranaki Iwi, and Ngāti Maniapoto, She is an independent researcher with current projects focused on Māori sovereignty, Pacific regionalism, anti-racism, and liberatory pedagogies. She is co-director of Te Kuaka, a group advocating for independent, progressive foreign policy. Nicky Hager ONZM is an investigative journalist who has been writing about geopolitics, intelligence ad defence matters since his 1996 publication of Secret Powers on the GCSB. In 2019 following an inquiry the SIS was told to apologise to him for unlawfully acquiring months of call logs from his phone in relation to his investigation into Defence Force activities in Iraq published in Hit and Run.

Building a Better Future - Craig Renney and Diana Russell - Jan 2023
Created 01/08/2023 - Papers & Presentations - 88 visits
Economist Craig Renney and policy analyst Diana Russell will present the CTU’s Alternative Economic Strategy to our first Fabian meeting of 2023. The Council of Trade Unions are in the middle of consulting with workers and organisations on their strategy. You will find a link to the document here. https://union.org.nz/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/AES-22-September-FINALweb.pdf “Building a Better Future” is their view of an economy that delivers for workers, and how this might be achieved. This includes making New Zealand the best country in the world to be a worker. NZ is already the best country in the world to be a business. The Prime Minister has said she wants NZ to be the best country to be a child. The CTU argues that in order for that vision to be realised we must first look after our workforce. The key design elements of the report revolve around 5 “missions” that they believe are central to a successful economic development pathway: 1. Economic equity 2. Delivering adequate housing and our infrastructure needs for the 21st Century 3. A Just Transition towards climate resilience 4. Decent work and greater work/life balance 5. Enabling the enduring wellbeing of New Zealand Each of these missions contains a policy proposal that they would like to discuss: 1. A National Investment Bank that delivers our central economic missions & a new state-owned default KiwiSaver provider to hold all default funds. 2. A Ministry of Green Works that delivers adequate housing, climate resilience, economic equity, decent work and a just transition 3. An energy revolution alongside a just transition (Industrial Revolution 5.0) 4. A Decent Work Act – to replace the Employment Relations Act. Pilot a four-day working week and ECE as right, progressively provided over time 5. Working with central government economic agencies to embed and build a genuine wellbeing approach to economic development They have three main questions they want to ask and get feedback: 1. What does a good economy look like for you? 2. What are your thoughts on the vision, direction and specifically the 5 missions? 3. What are your thoughts on their proposed solutions?

Assoc Prof Caroline Miller - Who and what do we plan for? Planning in New Zealand after the RMA - Nov 2021
Created 01/08/2023 - Papers & Presentations - 97 visits
Planning in New Zealand is at yet another crossroad as the recent exposure draft for the Natural and Built Environment Planning Bill revealed another U-turn for our planning system. In this presentation Caroline Miller will suggest that it is time to take stock of our planning system, to consider who it empowers, who it ignores and how it might be refocused to deliver a more equitable system for the benefit of the community as a whole. Caroline Miller is Associate Professor School of People, Environment and Planning Massey University Palmerston North She has a strong interest in the operation and performance of the Resource Management Act1991 (RMA), producing her first comprehensive critical assessment of the RMA in 2011; Implementing Sustainability: the New Zealand Experience (Routledge). Currently she is looking at how health and ageing issues can be better incorporated in future plans. She has produced substantial published research into the history of planning and environmental management in New Zealand, including the involvement of Māori in planning processes and the development of the planning profession.
A 'Ministry of Green Works' for Aotearoa New Zealand - Nov 2021
Created 01/08/2023 - Papers & Presentations - 121 visits
Earlier this month First Union published “A Ministry of Green Works for Aotearoa New Zealand: An Ambitious Approach to Housing, Infrastructure, and Climate Change” by Max Harris and Jacqueline Paul. The current system for building and delivering housing and infrastructure is not serving the needs of communities in Aotearoa New Zealand. The standard approach for government is to contract-out construction and related services to the private sector. The private sector is at capacity, the approach has drained know-how from the public service, and there is a skills shortage, a lack of innovation, and insufficient coordination to tackle climate change. A new approach is needed. FIRST Union’s Ed Miller will speak to why they commissioned the proposal for public discussion. FIRST Union’s “A Future that Works” campaign has been calling for the re-establishment of the MOW since early 2020 as part of pathway to full employment, including a just transition for workers in climate-stressed industries and expanding/improving our housing stock.

Emeritus Professor Margaret Wilson has always lived a political life. From her days as a child growing up in the Waikato in a Catholic family attuned to fairness, an unlikely law student in the 1960s in a class with a few other women, and an emerging socialist feminist who read radical texts and attended women's conventions, her key concerns became cemented early: the rights of women and equality for all under the law. This is the story of one of New Zealand's most eminent political actors.

Created 02/08/2023 - Papers & Presentations - 102 visits
Rob Campbell is the former chair of Te Whatu Ora Health New Zealand. His recent sacking has sharpened his commentary on the need for change. He speaks to us about progress in transforming what has been a fragmented system in order to “create a more equitable, accessible, cohesive and people-centred system that will improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders”. The new health system has been designed to enable a whole-of-country view to planning and delivering services, helping it to be efficient and consistent everywhere. A healthcare system that is nationally planned, regionally delivered and locally tailored and which will address things like surgical waiting lists. Check out their website for more information here. The government has set out six priorities for the new health system: · The health system will uphold Te Tiriti o Waitangi · People and whānau will be supported to stay well and connected to their communities · High-quality specialist and emergency care will be equitable and accessible to all when it is needed · Digital services and technology will provide more care in people’s homes and communities · Our health workforce will be valued and well trained, ensuring we have enough skilled people to meet future needs Rob is a professional director with extensive union, public and private sector governance experience spanning over 40 years. He currently chairs Ara Ake Ltd, NZ Rural Land Company and he is Chancellor of AUT, and is the former chair of the Environmental Protection Authority. In 2017 he was awarded the NZ Shareholders Assoc Beacon Award and the Deloitte NZ Chair of the Year Award in 2017, and then in 2019, awarded the Companion of the NZ Order of Merit and made a Distinguished Alumni of VUW.

Inflation and incomes - a long term plan - Craig Renney & Diana Russell - March 2023
Created 02/08/2023 - Papers & Presentations - 96 visits
The NZ Council of Trade Unions says the root cause of our inflation and cost of living challenge is the lack of a long-term economic plan. The issues New Zealand is facing could be addressed with an Inflation and Incomes Act. Inflation is viewed as a short-term crisis, when in reality, it's a long-term problem associated with New Zealand's present economic model. Economist Craig Renney (in person for this return visit) and policy analyst Diana Russell speak to their proposal on Tuesday 7 March – at 5.30pm at 2/57 Willis Street. Right now the main tool for controlling inflation is increasing the interest rate - that takes money out of working people's pockets disproportionately and increases unemployment - mostly for low income Kiwis. That makes New Zealand's already dire wealth gap worse, and hobbles our long-term economic growth. Every New Zealander is grappling with inflation and the cost of living. We need to be having a new conversation about how we address these issues not just now, but in the long run. We need a new approach that builds greater resilience to inflation and develops a more equitable economy in the process. An Inflation and Incomes Act would create a framework for how New Zealand manages its transition to a longer-term low-inflation environment. It would better marshal our economic development, infrastructure, and public service needs so that we can respond to inevitable economic change. The Act would pave the way for the kinds of investments that we need to tackle inflation in the long-run. Investments in home insulation, electrifying the vehicle fleet, and building the homes we need. Making sure that supply-chains are resilient, and that there is genuine competition in markets. And doing so in a way that manages the cost so that it is simply borne equitably by New Zealanders. Inflation is not a new problem for the poorest in New Zealand. It will continue to be an issue for all Kiwis unless we change how we approach it. We need to look towards alternative measures of curbing inflation that doesn't just call for higher unemployment.

A Left Response to the Cost of Living Crisis - Geoff Bertram & Craig Renney - Nov 2022
Created 02/08/2023 - Papers & Presentations - 108 visits
After decades of low inflation, prices are rising across the global economy, putting growing pressure on households. The Labour Government has responded in various ways – subsiding transport costs and tackling long-running market power issues in the supermarket and construction sectors. But a growing chorus of voices says the only way forward is for unemployment to rise, pushing the burden of the crisis onto workers. What really is driving this crisis? What should we do about it? And how does the government's response to date stack up? Join us to hear from Dr Geoff Bertram on these issues, with CTU economist Craig Renney responding. Dr Geoff Bertram is an economist from the Institute of Governance and Policy Studies at the Victoria University of Wellington, whose research has included investigations into excess profits and anti-competitive practices in New Zealand. Craig Renney is an economist and policy director with the Council of Trade Unions. The session will be chaired by journalist and barrister Ollie Neas.
