Track Zero works with the arts, science and other sectors to tell the climate story in ways that engage people’s hearts and minds – inspiring transformative climate change action.
Based in Wellington, our geographic focus is on our Pacific region, Aotearoa New Zealand and the Deep South (Antarctica). Climate change is an increasingly existential threat to people in the Pacific region and Antarctica is a reminder of our fragile connection with nature and the science empowers us to act. Our work aims to connect up the global, national, community and household levels – working across society for a fair, sustainable future.
We believe climate action goes hand-in-hand with improving wellbeing – tackling climate change at the same time as lifting people’s equality and sustainable development while making the world safer from the risk of disasters.
- Human rights are at the centre of what we do;
- Our work is evidence-based;
- Empowerment of people – to feel part of shaping the world we want to live in;
- Respect for diversity and other cultures in Aotearoa New Zealand;
- Honouring the Treaty of Waitangi – as a fundamental discourse in creativity and climate change in New Zealand’s constitution.
We acknowledge the Tangata Whenua (Indigenous Maori peoples of the land) and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present, and future. We also acknowledge the invaluable artistic and cultural legacy of Aotearoa New Zealand’s Indigenous peoples who have engaged with the natural world and its systems, handing down traditional knowledge for 2000 years through artistic expression, and who have been sustainable stewards of this land.
