MP Engagement Group - 28th July - Sydney North

People waving on Zoom

There is growing public momentum for our governments to act on climate and now is the time to build on that. The more of us who demand action, the more our politicians will listen.

Join us online — it’s amazing how much better it makes you feel, working together and encouraging our politicians to follow through on their promises and make things happen in parliament!

Despite the call for better climate policies from thousands of businesses and community members, the Parliamentary Energy and Environment Committee (of which North Sydney MP Trent Zimmerman is a member) has just recommended that the Climate Change Bill NOT be passed.

We need to keep up the pressure, demand that our MPs take a stronger position on emissions reduction targets, support the Climate Bill and invest more in renewable energy.

No matter which electorate you live in, we can help you to write a clear and effective letter to your MP, another minister, or a member of the Energy and Environment Committee.

The climate crisis hasn't gone away and we need to keep our politicians to account. It matters to MPs what the mood in their electorate is and what constituents want. But they can’t know that unless we tell them!

If you have never written to a politician or called one before, come along and we can help you get started. You'll need your laptop or tablet, and we'll have templates, materials and ideas to make it easy to make a difference.

If you have already contacted your MP and have received a lacklustre reply, we can workshop a follow-up plan together, and make sure we’re still keeping the pressure on at this crucial time.

RSVP to receive the Zoom link.

Hope to see you there!
