27th May 2017. Week of Action, Climate Lobby Training – Leeds

Week of Action 2017The Climate Coalition and Hope for the Future are offering free training for anyone seeking to engage their MP on climate change.

With three years of first hand experience and research into the most effective ways of engaging MPs on the topic of climate change, Hope for the Future’s training will provide support and advice to those wishing to make an impact on their MP.

The training will equip all those preparing for the Climate Coalition’s Speak Up Week of Action, from 1st – 9th July. Speak Up is a week of community events organised by campaigners to celebrate the people, places, and things they want to protect most from climate change. Find out more information here: www.weekofaction.org.uk.

The training will include;

– Practicalities of setting up a meeting and organising events.

– Effective communication with MPs and how to engage particularly challenging MPs.

– An opportunity to share good practice with other lobbyists.

– Hearing directly from policy makers and MPs what makes for effective lobbying.

Due to venue capacity there are limited spaces for the training so please register in advance. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.

If you would like to organise your own event during Week of Action, please look here for more support and resources or contact Joanne at your local CAFOD Volunteer Centre in Leeds (0113) 275 9302 or email leeds@cafod.org.uk
