MP Engagement Groups: How to run a successful local group

Last week the MPEG Community came together to share their experiences and top tips for running a successful local MP Engagement Group.


In addition to the resources we provided, we heard from long time group leaders Belinda and Helen from the South-East Naarm/Melbourne MPEG, Eezu who has run her Eora/Sydney group for the last year, and other climate leaders from QLD and Victoria.

It was a really positive session, with ideas flying around the room for how to:

  • engage best with different MPs
  • improve attendance at your group meetings
  • set a simple yet effective agenda, and
  • welcome new members by creating an exciting space for them to flourish.




The MPEGs team hopes to welcome 5 new groups around Australia to our community this year! So let us know if you want to join us in taking impactful action on climate change — we've got all the resources and know-how to get you on your way.

If you're a visual person, you may appreciate this terrific graphic representation of the session that participant Angela shared with us.
