Secondary teachers support student climate action

PPTA, the union and professional association for secondary teachers, welcomes the energy and engagement shown by New Zealand students in their fight for climate justice.

“Their determination and commitment are exactly what’s needed at this crucial moment. Students are showing the leadership that too many politicians are lacking”, PPTA president Jack Boyle says.

“We belong to the successive generations who have made this climate mess, and we are whakamā our young people are left to clean it up.”

PPTA vice-president Melanie Webber says, “As a union we know that change never happens by asking nicely. When politicians have their heads in the sand, protest action is sometimes the only way to get them to listen.”

“We stand by students in their demand for urgent climate action and a just transition. Kia kaha rangatahi!”
