Calling all supporters from all organisations that are part the Stop Climate Chaos coalition! (CAFOD, of course, being one of them).
Over 5 and 6 November (or a nearby date), we will try to lobby as many MPs as possible (hopefully over 50%) around the UK on climate change as part of The Big Climate Connection.
There will be 2 asks – one international, to do with the upcoming climate talks in Cancun, and one national, to do with the Energy Bill, which will be before Parlament at the time of the lobby. The exact asks will be available later on. All details of the lobby, together with a lobby pack and FAQs, are available from the link above.
There are 2 ways you can get involved:
1) Keen on lobbying your MP? Please sign up to be a constituency coordinator: add yourself to the interactive map on the website (click “Join your local lobby” and follow the instructions), book a meeting with your MP and keep in touch with others who sign up to lobby in your constituency. Remember you don’t need to be a big group to make an impact! Do let us know if you can act as a coordinator for your constituency
2) Willing to attend a local event? Add yourself to the interactive map on the website (click “Join your local lobby” and follow the instructions) and the local coordinator, if there is one, will keep you posted on the local lobby.
To make this a success – we need help from everyone! Please consider lobbying your MP on 5-6 November. Anyone with a concern for climate change is very welcome to join in!
