MPEG Community training #2: Talking to your MP

Join us for a special MPEG Community training workshop – strategies for talking to MPs and getting real action on climate!

This online workshop session is designed to help you meet with your MP and get them speaking about climate in Parliament, listening to the community and delivering what community members want when it comes to climate policy. 

The session will be designed for those who have already reached out to their MP via email, might have a dialogue going, and want to take things further with an in person MP meeting. We’ll go through the steps to get a meeting, help you develop an agenda and talk you through resources you might like to use.

Special guest speaker:

Stephanie McKew from Environmental Leaders Australia (ELA) will talk about the best strategies for engaging with MPs, in particular conservative MPs. Stephanie is an experienced corporate affairs, communications and stakeholder engagement professional and a senior policy adviser. She has held a number of senior policy positions in the former Federal Coalition Government, working in the portfolio areas of energy, environment, industry, science and skills. She has worked for a Prime Minister and a number of Cabinet Ministers, and is keen to share her extensive knowledge with those who want to engage with their Coalition MPs.

We encourage ALL our MPEG hosts, group members and our MPEG community to attend this session, as there will be loads of really useful information and a chance to ask specific questions about your MP and electorate.

We hope to see you there!
