Take a walk with a friend or twenty, wearing our AP4CA t-shirts and brandishing our climate- call-to-action flyers/cards. Connect with your local community by stopping for a chat, introducing yourself, and ask them if they are a parent or grandparent who cares about creating a safe future for you children.
If they say yes, pass them one of our flyers/cards and talk them through how they can get involved. Our flyers/cards ask them to:
Scan a QR code to sign a petition asking their MP to take climate action;
Host a Climate Action sign in their front yard
Join their local AP4CA group, or join with other locals like you to meet with your local federal election candidates and ask for climate action.
If they say no, that's ok, thank them for their time and wish them a great day! They will remember you for being polite.
You can also do this activity at the entrance or exit to your local farmers market, or out the front of your local supermarkets. It’s a fun way to meet your community, and empower each other to truly participate in our democracy!! Just half an hour of your time will reach dozens of people, and create connections in your community.

Other talking points - if people get chatty!
Talk about what you love about your community, and what kind of community you want it to be in the future - jobs in renewable energy, a safe place for kids to play all summer long without fear of heat waves or bushfires or floods. And how right now is a key moment to get your local political candidates to commit to stronger climate action now.
