Speak Up: three ways to join the week of action
29 June 2017
We’re excited to announce the start of the Speak Up week of action, 1-9 July 2017. Here are three ways you can speak up to your MP during this inspiring week of climate action.
1. Go to an event near you
Take part in a local Speak Up event from 1-9 July. You’ll not only get to meet friendly people in your neighbourhood, but you’ll also urge your MP to act in solidarity with the world’s poorest people.
Hundreds of exciting events are kicking off across England and Wales. In Stoke-on-Trent, primary school children will speak up to their MP during a school assembly. In Nottingham, climate champion Jason will organise a pop-up photo exhibition of communities he visited in Zimbabwe. And in Leighton Buzzard, parishioners will join their MP for a Power to be liturgy to reflect on renewable energy.
Sign up on the map to go to a nearby Speak Up event, and invite family and friends to come too.
2. Go to your MP’s surgery
By meeting your local MP in person, you can make a huge difference. So if there's no Speak Up event near you, please go to meet your MP at their local surgery.
Most MPs hold surgeries to meet their constituents once a month. This is a great opportunity to meet your newly-elected MP and explain why you want them to act on climate change and renewable energy.
You can find out when your MP holds their surgery by visiting their website or emailing their office. Search for your MP on the parliament website by typing in your postcode.
Don't forget to add your surgery visit as an event on the map to encourage other people in your constituency to join you.
3. Tweet your MP
If you can’t meet your MP in person, don’t worry! You can still speak up on Twitter.
A simple tweet can help inspire your MP to take your message about climate change and a cleaner, more secure future to parliament.
