Our Team


Deconstructing Paris is an independent group of law students, graduates and practitioners based in Wellington, New Zealand. 

This website, which we run in our spare time, has been developed to harness the growing interest on campus about tackling climate change from a legal and political standpoint.

We see the approaching COP21 in Paris as a critical moment for climate progress and hope our critical analysis will spread awareness, highlight hidden issues, and promote a global agreement that reflects the seriousness of the issue.

Deconstructing Paris is an open platform to anyone who is interested. Our team has grown to include members across New Zealand and the globe, and will be partnering with the Aotearoa Youth Leadership Institute delegation to COP21 in December.

  1. Dear climates peers,

    I’m writting to send congratulations for the work you’re doing.
    Your “Deconstructing Paris” student project is very useful.
    I’m a young attorney in France, focused on environmental issues and climate change since COP15.
    I’m preparing the Paris conference with the french youth movement called WARN (We Are Ready Now).
    I was woundering if anyone of you is planning to come to Paris next december. I’m in charge of logistical matters as accommodation and I’ve sent an email on the YOUNGO list-serv to help youth delegations coming to Paris. So this message is just to be sure no one is forgotten.
    Don’t hesitate to contact me if you’re coming to Paris. I will help you to find accommodation plans gathering youth NGOs.
    Or feel free to contact first, the New Zealand Youth Delegation via its contact : David Tong

    Kind regards
