Registrations for CANA Summerfest 2017 Are Now Open!

Death Star 15

Registrations for the CANA Summerfest 2017 are now open. Don’t delay – get your request for a Registration Pack in to and we’ll send you one by return email.

Growth in the dairy industry is resurrecting coal – and killing the climate. 95% of Fonterra’s milk is made into powder for export and most of the powder is dried using coal – the dirtiest fossil fuel on the planet. There is an alternative. Fonterra could use wood waste – but while there’s no price on carbon they have no incentive to do this.  They won’t stop using coal until we make them stop.

Our COAL, COWS and CLIMATE Summerfest will include all levels of participation for a weekend of family-friendly networking, sharing, nvda (nonviolent direct action) training and action.
