Fancy finding out how to get your MP’s attention? Think you can put the message across on tv, radio or other media? Want young people’s voices to be at the heart of the call for action on climate change?
Come and join us for training, inspiration and to plan creative lobbying - then get involved in putting it all into practice as part of the national Speak Up week of action 8-16 October. This event is FREE but please make a donation if you can, on our LocalGiving page or on the day.
Speakers / workshop leaders will include:
Paul Blomfield MP - How to lobby your MP
Hope for the Future - Lobbying MPs of all different parties on climate
Youth Climate Champions and People & Planet activists - How we spoke up in Paris and Krakow
Christian Aid - How to get in the media, and what to do when you get there!
This event, part of the Festival of Debate, is open to anyone from across South Yorkshire and the Peak District who wants to lobby for climate action or get in the media - young people are especially welcome and there will be sessions led by and for young people.
The event will start with lunch - bring your own and we'll provide hot drinks! At 1pm the sessions will start.
Let us know your Constituency (or postcode) so we can include as many areas as possible.
