This free relationship-building training from climate communications specialists, Hope for the Future, in collaboration with Biofuelwatch and Cut Carbon Not Forests, will provide you with the tools to communicate the urgency of climate change to politicians and decision-makers.
Based on Hope for the Future’s 7 years’ experience engaging MPs, this training will provide you with the skills to build strong relationships with your elected representatives on climate change, with a particular focus on diverting renewable subsidies from biomass burning towards renewable energy.
