About this event

We know that policies, technologies and practices already exist that, if taken up at scale and speed, could slow, stop or even reverse global warming. What we are missing is the social and political will needed to act.

Through her work as a volunteer facilitator with Climate for Change, Sue Dwyer saw many people ‘wake up’ to the urgency of climate action and want to do something effective, however people often lack confidence in engaging with their elected representatives, especially if they’re new to doing this.

That’s why Sue started Climate for Change’s MP engagement groups (MPEGs) – local groups of ordinary people who come together to write to, call or meet with their MPs about issues relating to climate change. Sue has heard directly from politicians that the more “noise” constituents make (as in emails, calls and visits) the more they take notice.

Come and get some tips from Sue about getting started with letter writing and other ways to be heard by your MP, and potentially also how to get your own local group together to do more of this. There will be time for some hands-on letter writing in the session, so bring a device or paper and pen.
