OraTaiao is coordinating groups of health people & friends/families to walk together in ten of 34 People's Climate Marches around NZ this weekend.
Our NZ marches will be the first of more than 2000 world-wide before the UN Climate Summit in Paris starts this Monday.
This is the time to gather your family, friends, colleagues, organisations...and make history in the biggest climate marches ever. Wear white and dress up with white coats and stethoscopes if you like.
Share your photos and comments on social media – tag in @OraTaiao so we can retweet, share on Facebook – and share with [email protected] so we can celebrate healthy climate action around NZ.

Professor Sir Ian Gilmore Quote, Nov 2015 (physician and immediate past president of the UK Royal College of Physicians)
“Doctors [and all other health professionals] need look no further than the clear evidence that what is good for the climate is also good for their patients’ health to give them a clear mandate for speaking out. We remain respected and trusted within our communities and have a responsibility to make clear to them the urgency and enormity of the challenge to mitigate the impact of climate change. What better way to do this than by marching".
