‘Hope for the Future’ speaks to the ‘Climate Communications Hub’
Hope for the Future is a charity which supports ordinary citizens who want to talk to their MPs about climate change. They do this by helping constituents find common ground with MPs of all political persuasions, using language that speaks to their MP’s values and interests in order to inform and engage them, but also to nudge them to taking practical action on climate change. HftF believe that “It is only through building the trust of those with whom we disagree that we are able to have the kind of robust conversations that would not otherwise have been possible, leading to transformed attitudes and tangible action.”
Hope for the Future’s mission is “to support climate campaigners, academics, faith communities, local groups, NGOs and individuals across the UK to have their voices heard on climate change”. The Climate Communications Hub (who are affiliated to Carbon Neutral University) are delighted to welcome HftF’s Sarah Robinson and Jo Musker-Sherwood to their March meeting to tell us about their organisation’s climate communications approach. The event will take place on Thursday 21st March, 7.30 to 9.30pm at University of Sheffield’s ‘The Diamond’ building (Lecture Theatre 8), Sheffield S8 S3 7RD. Places are free, though there will be a collection box for those who feel they can donate to cover ‘Climate Communications Hub’ costs. Click on the Eventbrite page here to register your place.
