On 26 March 2018 the oil and gas industry is holding its annual business conference. Government ministers are lobbied, businesses network and oil and gas exploration permits are announced.
Join the building movement for climate justice and a fair and sustainable future. Help us stop the Oil Summit in Wellington, 26 March 2018. Now is the time for a just transition away from fossil fuels – not exploration for new oil and gas.
More information about the action will come soon, but in the mean time save the date, share with your friends and read the information on this site.
