Join our political lobbying network
Our campaigns often make the headlines, from our ships investigating injustice on the high seas, to our campaign volunteers on the high street. Behind the scenes, we’re busy making sure our messages get heard at the highest level of government with the help of people like you in communities across the UK.
Sometimes what we really need to achieve the change we want to see is a well written letter, or simply a face-to-face conversation raising the issues that matter to you with your local representatives.
We’re growing our Political Lobbying Network; a network made up from people across the UK who take the national and international issues that Greenpeace campaigns on, and make them relevant at a local level.
We are looking for passionate and determined individuals who want to develop their skills in writing, research, and presenting a persuasive argument to influence MPs, councillors and other decision makers. You might start with a tweet or an email. If you have more time you might want to write a personalised letter. You may end up arranging meetings and influencing politicians to make real change in person.
If this sounds like something you’d like to get involved with, please register your interest below or read more about the Network from member Fi Radford.
You must be 18 or over, and have an address in the UK, and the right to vote here, to get involved.
To help you get started we’ve developed an online training programme. If you’ve never done any lobbying before, or are a seasoned pro there are resources available to support you. When you register your interest below, you’ll also receive more details about our online training.
We’re also developing face-to-face training, so you can meet with others in your local area.
