  • ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCACY

    Advocacy is about influencing people, policies, structures and systems in order to bring about change. It is about communicating with those in power and persuading them to act in more just and equitable ways. At the core, it is about building relationships. As climate change is a global problem, governments around the world need to work together to find a solution. At TESCL, we support national government by carrying out research and collecting data related to local impacts of climate change.

    OUR ADVOCACY METHODS

    • DIRECT INFLUENCING (sometimes called lobbying)

      This is about increasing the awareness of someone in a position of power about an issue and suggesting potential solutions. It is important to provide them with information and evidence to support our climate change or environmental problem argument. we do this, orally or in writing. It involves writing letters to officials, or it could involve meeting with them individually or in public meetings. Relationship-building is often an effective activity. At TESCL, we also do include people who are directly affected by an issue in influencing those in power, whether that means involving them in research, consulting them about what needs to be done, or enabling them to speak directly to those in power.

    • MOBILISING THE PUBLIC (sometimes called campaigning)

      This is about telling the public about a situation – the problem and the potential situation – so that they are encouraged to take action. It also involves telling people about how a situation may affect them. At TESCL, we do arrange public meetings, taking part in demonstrations or marches, writing newsletters, reports, policy briefs, asking people to sign petitions, or preaching.

    • MEDIA

      This is about informing people about an environmental problem climate change issues, identifying those who are responsible, and suggesting solutions for those who have the power to change the situation. At TESCL, we write articles, policy briefs, or letter for a newspaper or magazine, talking on the radio or TV, telling journalists about the situation or producing a press release.
