Thank you for your support29 September 2022
Just wanted to give an update on how your support has helped our AUT law student team.
Firstly, our petition presentation to Parliament was a success. Here is a link to our written submission’s supporting our reasoning behind what we are asking our government for, as well as responses from The Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Environment: https://www.parliament.nz/en/pb/sc/submissions-and-advice/all?custom=PET_116692
Secondly, 2 AUT students chose to work on trying to impact legislation until the end of semester 2. This led us to meeting the Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister, being included in a report from her office, and one students being on the panel for a WasteMINZ NZ Food Waste Summit, offering a grass roots, lived experience and human rights lens.
Change is coming…we can feel it! And we wouldn’t have been able to be a part of it without supporters like yourselves.
