LOBBY POLITICIANS …
Writing to or visiting your local Member of Parliament is one of the best up front way of getting through to politicians. They do take notice when lots of their electorate contact them with an issue … for obvious reasons. And as they say, squeaky wheels gets the oil!
Rather than reinvent the wheel, we’re including helpful suggestions, letter templates and links from other CLIMATE ACTION organisations. See below.

The AP4CA is an excellent grassroots, community organisation who set up several years ago … they’re still working hard to spread information and gaining support. Highly recommended info site.
