All around Aotearoa, local and regional groups are forming to take action against the expansion of coal mining.

This is your chance to get involved in action in your region.

Relationship between CANA and regional groups

Coal Action Network Aotearoa organises the national campaign, while the regional groups set the agenda for their own region. The flow of information and resources works both ways. We’re autonomous groups working towards the same objective.
