Sign up now to Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice on December 5th
Worried about climate change? Frustrated by the government’s inaction on active travel and other measures to tackle emissions? Eager to do something to get your TDs to take #ClimateActionNow?
Then join the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition in Buswells Hotel, Dublin, on Wednesday December 5th, for Rise for Climate, Jobs & Justice.
Cyclist.ie/Dublin Cycling Campaign, a member of the Stop Climate Chaos coalition since 2016, will be participating on the day offering cycling as a real solution to transport climate pollution reduction through the #Allocate4Cycling) campaign.
Register for this event and email your TDs to ask them to meet you at the event.
A template is provided. You can add your own message about how cycling can help us meet our emissions targets:
- Transport accounts for 20% of overall emissions (and of this 52% comes from private cars)
- Switching from car journeys to bike can help to reduce emissions
- The more people who bike, the cleaner our air will be
- Cycle trips don’t generate air or noise pollution
- Investing in cycling provides excellent value for money
- Cycling is an affordable mobility option for all
Sounds great! But what should I talk to them about?
All you need to do is share your real concerns about climate change with your TDs. Tell them that as your elected representative, they and their party should do more to reduce Ireland’s emissions, and that we can’t go on being one of the worst polluters per person in Europe.
We took part in similar SCC hosted events previously and those who have participated have found them empowering. Plus, we know that TDs are impacted by meeting groups of their own constituents who care passionately about an issue. A few years ago, running a similar kind of lobby day secured the climate law. Now, we need an action plan that actually cuts greenhouse gas emissions.
