The Greens have announced support for voting at 16.

Do you know how climate change is affecting our island neighbours?

Kate Green Reporter from Dominion Post

Hi neighbours! A group of students have returned from their time on Tokelau with a story to tell of strength and community in the face of climate change. Their documentary, VAKA, is on display as part of Massey's Exposure exhibition until Nov 17. What are your thoughts on projects like this?
