About Climate Change and Divestment - Paisley Skill Share Workshop

Join the fight to keep fossil fuels in the ground!

The event will be introduced by Mhairi Black MP, who has recently backed the campaign to divest the MPs Pension Fund from fossil fuels owing to concerns about climate change.

This free skill share workshop is an exciting opportunity to learn how to communicate, engage and build positive relationships with MPs and Councillors regarding fossil fuel divestment and political action on climate change.

We'll be learning and putting into practice the best strategies to convince local MPs and Councillors to back divestment and to get their support for investing in a clean energy future.

As well as free snacks, you can expect to:

• Get to grips with the exciting divestment movement and our campaign work in Scotland
• Learn about effective ways to build relationships with MPs and Councillors
• Concoct ace plans to engage MPs and Councillors across Paisley and surrounding areas about divestment and climate change

We need everyone to help pressure our political leaders to keep fossil fuels in the ground and invest in a common future that is powered by renewables, so you are needed to help with this regardless of experience or background!

If you can’t make the event, you can still write to your MP urging them to divest their pension using this email tool (please personalise your email as much as possible!):
