Want to work better with your MP on Climate Change?

Fed up with your MP’s bland replies to your letters? What to effect change at a local and national level? Hope for the Future, the UK’s specialists in training citizens to work with MPs on climate change are offering free training on Saturday 27th May. Their innovative approach has enabled constituents to collaborate even with climate sceptical MP’s. More details and booking

The training will equip all those preparing for the Climate Coalition’s Speak Up Week of Action, from 1st – 9th July. Speak Up is a week of community events organised by campaigners to celebrate the people, places, and things they want to protect most from climate change.

The training will include:

  • Practicalities of setting up a meeting and organising events
  • Effective communication with MPs and how to engage particularly challenging MPs
  • An opportunity to share good practice with other lobbyists
  • Hearing directly from policy makers and MPs what makes for effective lobbying

Due to venue capacity there are limited spaces for the training so please register in advance.

A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
