New Zealand has set itself a bunch of ambitious social and environmental targets for the coming decades. Smoke-free 2025, for example, and Predator-Free 2050. The youth-led climate change group Generation Zero wants to add another binding commitment to that list: Zero Carbon by 2050.

Lisa MacLaren, is a PhD at the joint centre for disaster research, and she's also the national convenor of Generation Zero.
