Opportunity TOMORROW! Join a virtual mass lobby

Take part on Tuesday 30th June and ask your MP for a green recovery.

 

This Tuesday coming (30th June) more than 10,000 people will hold virtual meetings with their Westminster MPs and you can join them.

 

Responding to Covid-19 has rightly been the priority over the last few months. However, the climate and nature crises have not gone away. We need to speak up and ask our MPs to ensure that the recovery from the health crisis addresses climate change and nature’s decline at the same time.

 

We’re working with our friends at The Climate Coalition to help give our our supporters a louder voice.

 

How to take part:

 

More than 130 MPs have confirmed a meeting time. You can see if your MP is one of them here.

If they already have a meeting you will need to email or call them to ask for the zoom link. You can find their details on the government’s website.

If they haven’t already confirmed a meeting you can find out how to book one with them here.

Join the zoom call with them on the day.

Sign up

 

Although the lobby is tomorrow lots of MP meetings are scheduled for later in the week. It’s your MPs job to represent you and you can ask to speak to them at any point in the year – it doesn’t have to be tomorrow. 

 

Not sure what to say?

 

As Woodland Trust volunteers you probably know a lot more than you think! But you don’t need to be an expert to show your MP how much you care. What’s important is that our MPs know that addressing the climate and nature emergency (with the help of trees) is a priority for the people they represent.

 

Read our blog to find out what the Woodland Trust thinks a green recovery looks like.

 

Read the Climate Coalition briefing to find out about the key asks of the lobby.

What else is happening?

 

Throughout the day you’ll be able to find drop into the Lobby Mainstage – a central rallying point packed with Q&As and information sessions and a place to meet some of the other people taking part – all on zoom! Sign up here.

 

If you have any questions please email Naomi in the Campaigns team.

    I am just wondering how many volunteers you had hoped to reach about this event with a day’s notice? Might it not have been better to email volunteers? I think the Trust really needs to review how it communicates with volunteers and members compared with other conservation bodies.
