Canvass your MP

Published: 12th Jun 2008 in Ethical Web Design

This month we have been extremely happy to to be involved in the Canvass Your MP campaign.

Canvass your MPThis campaign was masterminded by a group of green bloggers who decided that something needs to be done about climate change and fast.

In lightening speed the bloggers met, created the campaign concept and gave it a name. Then what they needed was a web team to design and build phase 1 of the website in just 72 hours! We couldn’t let this pass by without being involved and so Jez, here at Make Hay, stepped up and volunteered. After burning the midnight oil all weekend the website was launched on Monday.

Canvass Your MP is all about engaging your local MP, meeting him or her face to face, discussing your concerns about climate change and encouraging them to support proposals for a stronger Climate Change Bill. Specifically to set a target of 80% cuts in CO2 emissions by 2050 rather than the current 60% which just isn’t enough.

Green bloggers involved include friends of Make Hay Leonora Oppenheim from Treehugger and Asi Sharabi from Green Guys Global.
