Everyone is being encouraged to talk to their MPs about climate change during the Climate Coalition’s Speak Up Week of Action from 30 June-8th July 2018.
Churches and local groups are being asked to hold an environmentally focused event in the community – anything from having a street party, organising a local nature walk, screening a film, showing off great local environmental initiatives, or just arranging a meeting with the local MP. Whatever the event, the idea is to invite your local MP to show there is broad support for climate action and to build support for stronger UK climate targets.
You can find out more about the campaign, sign up to organise an event and download resources, including an organiser’s guide, on the Climate Coalition’s website.
Members of the Climate Coalition include A Rocha UK, CAFOD, Christian Aid, Church of Scotland, Eco-congregation Scotland, Green Christian, the Iona Community, the John Ray Initiative, Justice and Peace Scotland, Operation Noah, Quaker Peace and Social Witness, the Salvation Army, SCIAF, Scottish Episcopal Church and Tearfund.
