Dear MFE… Sincerely, Dunedin

Oil Free Otago Transcribes Consultation
Ministry for the Environment in Dunedin
Topic: Setting New Zealand’s post-2020 climate change target
Glenroy Auditorium, Dunedin
21 May 2015 6:30pm

Oil Free Otago noted that no government official filmed or recorded the consultation meeting, and therefore transcribed what was said so that the government, in particular the Ministry for the Environment is able to receive our messages in full. This transcription from Dunedin has been sent as a submission on behalf of the over 320 people present on the consultation evening, 21 May 2015.

Three of the officials present at the meeting were Guy Beatson, Deputy Secretary for the Ministry for the Environment, Bruce Arnold from the Ministry for Primary Industries and Pauline Dougherty from the Ministry for the Environment. The names of two additional officials was not clear. The meeting began with brief introductions from the ministry officials, then a two-minute explanatory video, after which the meeting was then opened for public input.
