Climate Action Week Marlborough

Written by  Staff Reporters

Marlborough's inaugural Climate Action Week, to be held from 13 to 17 February, has been designed to grow awareness and knowledge about lowering carbon emissions for a climate positive future, says organiser Catherine van der Meulen.

The week includes "immersion experiences", including a session on organics, biodiversity and tackling carbon emissions at Dog Point Vineyards, and another at Yealands Estate, focused on decarbonisation, biodiversity, "and leveraging these assets to grow the brand with meaning", says Catherine.

Yealands are also on board as founding sponsor.
