who we are
On May 2015, 70 year old Blenheim resident Bill McEwan and his son Robbie 33, sat in the centre of Blenheim and fasted for a week. They were dismayed by the lack of understanding in Marlborough around climate change. They called the action a karanga - a call. They were joined at the end of the week by others and subsequently Climate Karanga Marlborough (CKM) was created. We are active in Marlborough educating, lobbying and supporting the community.

E kore e taea te whenu Kotahi kite raranga
I te whariki kia mōhio tātou ki a tātou.
Mā te mahi tahi ō ngā whenu, mā te mahi tahi
ō ngā kairaranga, ka oti tēnei whāriki.
