One Climate One Challenge project in New Zealand

We are Carolina and Frédéric. Both 35 years old.

We travel around the world, we meet people. People from the authorities, scientists or citizens for instance. And we report their stories.

A first trip, a world tour, took place in 2012. During this first Episode we mainly talked about climate change, reporting on locally-specific topics. For each of these topics we drafted and published an article. For instance, we wrote about geothermal energy in New-Zealand, forests of Easter Island, Colombian Paramo ecosystem and artificial glaciers in India. We were on local TV twice! Back home we published a book gathering the 14 articles we wrote.

Episode 1 was a success! We are starting Episode 2 with confidence.

Episode 2 will take a similar path. During this 2016-2017 Episode 2, we want to focus and report on solutions. Good examples of sustainable solutions, in the fields of transportation, housing or industry. The purpose is to share an idea of what the sustainable human society can be. We called this new Episode “Introducing the sustainable society”.

We hope these reports will help the readers to be more informed and, ideally, to make them more aware of the “challenge” that climate change represents for humankind. We also consider this change as an opportunity and the low-carbon society a motivating target to reach!

Carolina Meza, Frédéric Gheung

After recording a River of Freedom review the Scoop Political Podcast went into hibernation. Now with a new Government formed it’s time to dust off this forgotten silver and look at the potential impact this documentary, about the Wellington parliamentary protest of 2022 had on Election 23. Watched by potentially tens of thousands of voters in the weeks prior to the election this movie was not likely to have won votes for the then Labour government. More

Gordon Campbell: On The Skewed Media Coverage Of Gaza

Now that he’s back as Foreign Minister, maybe Winston Peters should start reading the MFAT website which is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of how Kiwis alerted the rest of the world to the genocide in Rwanda. How times have changed ...

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.

ACT: Call To Abolish Human Rights Commission

“The Human Rights Commission’s appointment of a second Chief Executive is just the latest example of a taxpayer-funded bureaucracy serving itself at the expense of delivery for New Zealanders,” says ACT MP Todd Stephenson. More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More
