Climate leaders become beneficiaries as budget cuts axe community funding

Mildred Armah Reporter from Central Leader

A climate change educator is wondering where the next generation of climate leaders will come from if sweeping Auckland Council budget cuts are passed.

Auckland mayor Wayne Brown is seeking to plug a $375 million shortfall in Auckland Council’s budget. His proposal includes a $20m cut to a wide range of community, and arts funding.

This includes reducing local board operating funding by $16m – 5% of the total budget local boards oversee.
