Communications success: engaging with your MPs on climate change

Join us for an inside look at successfully engaging with your elected MP: tips, tricks and steps to booking your first meeting.

Sue Dwyer from Climate for Change and Katherine Barraclough from Doctors for the Environment join us for an evening of confidence-building and communications strategy. What do you need to reach out to your MP for a meeting? What are good ways to build constructive, long-term relationships with your elected reps? Using their own experiences as a guide Sue and Katherine will help you feel ready to take the first step, and we have some basic activities planned and a chance for you to hear first-hand from fellow citizens who've made the jump to frequent MP visitors. Join on Zoom (from 7:30pm) or Facebook Live (from 7:45pm).
