Speak Up – talk to your MP!
Sheffield Climate Alliance is working to make sure that your MP is lobbied about climate change this autumn! We’ve teamed up with the Climate Coalition and other organisations to provide lots of support. In every constituency we want campaigners old and new to feel confident to meet their MP, tell them what is threatened and encourage them to act. (Elected representatives often tell us they need to hear more from their constituents so they can prioritise climate action.)
You can find out more about the Speak Up lobby here and sign up to get updates on events being held. Contact us if you’d like to help organise a lobby (in your constituency, between 8-16 October). We are organising a training day open to constituents from South Yorkshire and Derbyshire to help you lobby and get the most from the media. This event, which is part of the Festival of Debate, also includes a Youth strand run by and for young people.
On 8th October we’ll be inviting at least one Sheffield MP to take a walk with us – would you like to do something similar?
Don’t forget, we are also asking Sheffield folk to write to their newly elected Councillors and seek action on Warm Homes, Good Jobs and Safe Pensions.
