MPEGs Week of Action: Writing to the media

People on Zoom

RSVP for MPEGs Week of Action, Event #1: Monday 11th October, 7pm - 8:30pm (AEDT)

With COP26 around the corner in early November, this is a huge moment for change and a real commitment from the Coalition and all political parties. Many community members and organisations are pushing for greater emissions reduction targets, but we always need more people to add their voices to the call for climate action. Every letter we write and conversation we have with our MP, and with others in our communities, makes a difference.

So, the MPEGS team would like to invite you, our MPEG hosts and group members, to our October MPEGS Week of Action — a chance for our wonderful community to meet, learn from each other and come away with new ways to take action on climate with your local group!

For this first session, we have a guest speaker from Melbourne action group Lighter Footprints, Ray Peck. He will be sharing his vast experience in getting letters into local and national newspapers, so that hundreds if not thousands of community members are exposed to different opinions on climate change — and MPs also watch this very carefully! Read his blog on writing a letter to the editor for a bit of background reading before the session.

MPEG hosts and all group members can choose to attend one or both of these sessions (you might like to send a few representatives to each session, then report back to your group):

We hope to see you at both of these events!

We'll send you the Zoom link when you RSVP below.
