What will climate change mean to Eastbourne?
And what can we do about it?

Meeting to inform Eastern Bays residents on climate change issues, promote discussion and identify future community responses. More details will be added as they become available. Questions can be submitted using form below.

Speakers

  • Associate Professor Richard Levy – Come and learn about the New Zealand SeaRise project and how it’s data can help you plan for, and adapt to, rising seas. New sea level projections account for local land movement, which can either accelerate or slow down sea level rise, and are available at points every 2km around our coastline. This new information can be accessed via an online map and can help communities, like Eastbourne, identify when coastal flooding events are likely to become more frequent.
  • Belinda Storey – Managing Director at Climate Sigma.  In 2017, Belinda coined the term “insurance retreat” and her new model “climate leases” estimates the time limit climate change is imposing on property exposed to extreme weather.
  • Hutt City Council Policy Planning Team – how climate change and sea level rise are being considered in developing Hutt City’s District Plan.
  • Roger Blakeley – Greater Wellington Regional Council – Chair GW Transport Committee.
    Mode shift – what GWRC plans to achieve by 2030 and how they plan to do it!
