Stop Climate Chaos

Working the local media

African Connection media coverage

Getting media coverage for your Rio Connection event will ensure that many more people in your community notice that there’s a local climate movement. Your MP will realise this as well, so securing media coverage is a good way to add weight to your lobbying. If you don’t have the time or energy to organise media work, then maybe someone else in your area could?

Spread the word about your event!

Flyers and posters

Good places to display posters include: local cafés, shops, libraries, community centres, town hall etc.

Making and continuing local connections

Making local connections...

Getting as many groups as possible involved will make your event more lively, help build useful connections in your area and demonstrate the breadth of local climate concern to your MP.

You’ll probably find there are lots of different groups in your area that are concerned about sustainability issues in one way or another - or others that may want to share their talents to help with sports events or making carnival costumes!

We’ve achieved a lot since the original Earth Summit in 1992. But we need our government to remain committed to delivering a green economy for the Scotland.

The Rio+20 summit is an opportunity to remind politicians in the UK that sustainable development must remain a political priority.

Help keep tar sands out of Europe

Tar sands produce 3-5 times the carbon emissions associated with crude oil production, bad news for a low carbon economy.

Yet the UK Government, under pressure from Canada which produces most of the world’s tar sands, is refusing to support an EU proposal that would effectively ban tar sands from European import.

We still have a chance to reverse our government’s position before the vote on 23 February.

Tell Norman Baker and Nick Clegg there is no place for dirty oil in a green European Union!
