There are four major concerns of the NZ activist groups listed on the Paddle Now site:

  • Environmental Protection and Climate Change.
  • Peace and Conflict Resolution.
  • Human rights and social Justice.

There is one other area of concern that, while featuring largely in Paddle Now’s thoughts, is currently left almost entirely to the concern of activist groups overseas.

  • Global Governance.

All activist groups, no matter what their chosen area of activity, have the ultimate ambition of persuading governments to adopt policies that align with their stated goals.

As a monitor of progress in the four areas of reform and change listed above, NZ political parties have been invited to list on this site and give brief summaries of their policies in each of the areas listed.
