Write to your MP
UKSCN and SOS-UK are planning a parliamentary reception for 26 February 2020 for our Teach the Future campaign. MP’s often ignore messages for non-constituents, and there are only about 30 of us involved in Teach the Future, so it would be really helpful to our campaign if you could send a letter like the one below to your own MP.
Teach the Future is focused on England for now, because education is a devolved matter. Having said that, MPs from the other nations are welcome to attend our reception if you want to
Feel free to personalise the letter however you like. You can find out your MP’s email address here. If they say yes to attending, please let us know by forwarding their email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your support!
Subject: Climate Emergency Education
Dear [insert name of MP],
My name is [your name] and I live in [your town/city + postcode]. I am contacting you because I’m supporting the new student-led Teach the Future campaign, which is calling for a climate emergency education act. There is an event in Parliament on 26 February 2020, 4-6pm in the Pavilion Terrace, to launch the campaign to MPs. Education is an issue that I greatly care about, and this is a campaign that I fully support, so I’d be very grateful if you could take time to attend and hear the young people make the case for changes to the education system in response to the climate emergency.
