Invite your MP to your Green Week event

Are you hosting an event or local Green Week in your community this September? Make sure to invite your MP!

You can invite your MP to attend the event, come along to meet members of your community, or even be a part of the event itself. 

Great Big Green Week will unleash a wave of support for action to protect the planet, and we want to show our politicians how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces. Inviting your MP to your event is a great opportunity to tell your MP about what is happening locally, and why you care about action on climate and nature. 

When planning the event to invite your MP to, bear in mind that both the Labour and Conservative party conferences overlap with Great Big Green Week, which may affect your MP’s availability. Labour MPs are likely to be at their conference from Sunday 25th to Wednesday 28th September, and the Conservative conference runs from Sunday 2nd to Wednesday 5th October.

Email your MP using the customisable template below. Simply type in your postcode, make the message your own and then it will be sent straight to your MP’s inbox.

STEP ONE: EMAIL YOUR MP

It is more important than ever to create a voice for change that cannot be ignored. Use our customisable template to send an email to your MP to invite them to take part in the Great Big Green Week.

Simply type in your postcode, add in details of your event and how your MP can get involved, and then it will be sent straight to your MP’s inbox.

STEP TWO: CONNECT WITH YOUR COMMUNITY

Use our Facebook group to find others in your constituency to see if anyone is hosting an event in your area, and whether they have contacted your MP.

STEP THREE: FOLLOW UP

Once you’ve emailed your MP, you should receive an automatic reply confirming that it has been received and a time frame for when they will reply (usually 1-2 weeks, but it can be longer). 

If your MP doesn’t get back to you within the time frame, it’s always worth a follow-up email or phone call. Sometimes emails get lost in inboxes, or their offices are dealing with a lot of enquiries.
