Something to go to in Wellington

As some of you may know, Saturday is a global day of action against climate change, with demonstrations around the world to demand urgent action from negotiators in Bali on a strong post-Kyoto framework. In Wellington, they're holding a Climate Action Festival in Civic Square and the City Gallery cinema, with talks and a screening of Leonardo DiCaprio's documentary The 11th Hour. Panel discussions include "Climate change - from science to policy to action", with Peter Barrett (VUW), Dr Dave Lowe (NIWA) and Ralph Chapman (former head of the climate change office, now at VUW), and "The outlook for someday - options for everyone" with Cath Wallace (VUW), Russel Norman (Green party co-leader) and Ray Ahipene-Mercer (Wellington City Council).

When: Saturday, 8 December, 12:00 - 19:00 (panels start at 12:30)
Where: Civic Square, City Gallery cinema, The Film Archive
How much: Koha

Meanwhile, in Palmerston North, we apparently get a stall at the local recycling centre...
