Why a People’s Inquiry?
Researchers and activists have been working tirelessly over many decades to create change and raise awareness around the issues of harm from toxic chemical exposure. However, the use of toxic chemicals continues in agriculture, horticulture, conservation and roadside weed 'management'. The harm created is still largely ignored by those in positions of authority.
This must change. We see a People’s Inquiry as a catalyst for that change. We see strength in a broad environmental alliance. This alliance is working towards a deep paradigm shift for a truly clean, safe and sustainable environment for all.
The Inquiry is open to all New Zealanders and all people are welcome to send in their written, oral or video submissions. Submissions are only made public with the consent of the author. The Inquiry will gather people's evidence of harm from chemical and poison exposure. We welcome submissions from scientists and experts in these fields. The Inquiry will also explore existing and innovative solutions to the problems of toxic chemical use.
If you have a story to tell, and feel you haven't been heard, we are listening! Please register your interest in making a submission here: https://peoplesinquiry2020.nz/registration/
