There’s a large group of students who won’t be striking for climate change action.

They’re the ones performing or watching the Auckland Secondary Schools Cultural Festival or Polyfest at the Manukau Sports Bowl.

But that doesn’t mean the issue will be ignored.

Tāmaki Makaurau MP Peeni Henare says based on past form climate change is likely to be the theme of some of the performances.

He says the actions of the rangatahi around the country are a valuable reminder for decision makers like himself.

"I think we’ve gone past the point of slow and gradual change and while I think we are heading in the right direction by getting rid of single use plastic bags and that sort of thing, we need drastic fundamental change. I read one report recently that in the next 40 years to world will be a vastly different place and on that basis we have failed our tamariki," Mr Henare says.
