10 ways to motivate others
Get in on the action - Trafalgar Square 1-3pm, Saturday 4 November.
The more of us there are in Trafalgar Square, the louder a message we can send to Tony Blair. Here are 10 ways you can help get lots more people to come to the I Count event.
- Tell all your friends and family. It's obvious but sometimes forgotten - why not arrange to all travel together.
- Send an email out to everyone in your address book. Unlike spam people are more likely to read an email that a friend sends.
- Leave piles of flyers around where you live, in: newsagents, train stations, notice boards, churches. Flyers are available from Stop Climate Chaos - just email [email protected]
- Hand flyers out at local events, after screenings of An Inconvenient Truth, at fairs, farmers markets and speaker meetings etc. Flyers are available from Stop Climate Chaos - just email [email protected]
- Hand out flyers in your High Street. Set up a table and hand them out as people go by. Get your friends and family to help you. Why not have a role play if you've never done this before. Remember flyers will have more impact if you get to talk about the issue to people who are handing them out.
- Give a talk or presentation. The list of where these could take place is endless: women's groups, schools, youth clubs, residents groups and so on. Remember to start where you feel comfortable.
- Organise a DIY prop-making session, for your church, mosque, playgroup to bring banners and flags to the event. A wonderful way to get others involved and it's always good to represent where you come from.
- Write a letter or send a press release to your local newspaper. Coming soon - a template press release. Click here to download our 4 November Organiser's Pack, complete with regional media toolkit.
- Organise a publicity stunt. Make it photogenic to give it more chance of being picked up by the press.
- Arrange transport so that it will be easy for people to get to the event.
