Auckland Queen's Counsel and artist Clive Elliott will hold an exhibition of his paintings on the theme of climate change in Auckland and Wellington in March.

Mr Elliott, who is a former Chair of the New Zealand Bar Association, says the exhibition will be entitled "So Much to Lose".

"It explores the greatest existential threat facing humanity - global warming - and the irreversible climate change, and what we need to do about it," he says, and encourages as many people as possible to attend and get involved.

All artwork in the exhibition will be sold by Silent Auction, with the proceeds going to the Sustainable Business Network and Sustainable Coastlines.

There will be two exhibitions:

Wellington on 13 March from 6 to 7:30pm at the Wellington Club, 88 The Terrace. James Renwick, climate change scientist and communicator will be a guest speaker.

Auckland on 20 March from 6 to 7:30pm at SO/Auckland Hotel, Corner Customs Street East and Gore Street. Georgina Hart, the Project Lead for the Million Metre Streams Project, will be guest speaker.
