Can you influence your school to take action on climate change? It’s not as difficult as you might think!
Think about ways in which you can use your influencing skills to encourage others to take action on our current campaign on climate change. There are numerous ways of doing this. The action is really, really simple.
Climate change action
Climate change affects everyone, but especially the poorest and most vulnerable people among us. Inspired by Pope Francis and Laudato Si, we call on you to show leadership nationally and internationally so that agreements on tackling climate change and poverty are fair and ambitious.
We urge you and other world leaders to cut carbon emissions to keep global temperature rise below the dangerous threshold of 1.5°C, and to prevent climate change pushing people deeper into poverty.
Encourage people to sign our online climate petition that can be found here:
You can do this in a range of ways, perhaps through a social media campaign? Or get a few of you together to plan how to promote this to students in your school, and perhaps parents as well.
Think about how you can get as many people to sign this. And remember, it doesn’t have to be you! You can influence others to promote the action. Perhaps give year 7’s a campaign challenge, those who get the most signatures win a prize? We’ll leave it to your imagination.
If you need any additional resources or help just let us know. Remember you can pop over to our resource page to refresh yourself with what you learnt during the workshops at the conference here.
