Thank you for helping get the word out.
Your role is to ask people in Ottawa to contact their city councillor so that the city will begin work on a climate change strategy. Nothing motivates politicians like a bunch of their voters asking them to do something.
The tools available to you here are:
- background info & video
- a suggested script for when you call people
- calls often go to voicemail - here's what to do
- if someone wants more info here's text for an email
Ecology Ottawa will provide you with a list of people to call. You should also consider calling your friends, family and neighbours.
If you haven't got a list to call please let us know. You can:
- go here and tick "I'll help spread the word and ask others to call their Councillor"
- or let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We have some alternative scripts if you'd rather try them. We'll be holding information meetings and sharing tips on what works in a call and what doesn't. If you have any tips or wisdom please let others know in the comments field below.
