Take an e-action
Its time to tell politicians that they need to act now on climate change. They will only go as far as we can push them.
Go to our E-action page now and use you voice.
Write to your TD
Nothing motivates TDs as much as hearing from their constituents. Find your TDs address and write to them telling them you want to see more Government action on climate change. Ask them to put in place a strong law on Climate Change that seriously cuts Irish Greenhouse Gas emissions.
Or get some of our Friends of the Earth Postcards and send them to your TDs. Get in touch with us and we can send you out some postcards. Everyone has at least three TDs so you can send each of them a postcard and get all your friends and family to fill a few in too and post them off.
Or collect a bunch of signed postcards and keep them for the next point
Visit your TD
Get a bunch of our signed postcards together and a few friends and make an appointment to go and meet you TD in person. This is even easier than it sounds as politicians are always very pleasant to their constituents and listen carefully to their concerns.
Get in touch with us and we can support you in this. We have an action pack we can send you and lots of advice to give. Use our feedback form here to ask us for help.
Join or start a local group
Get together any other people that you know who are interested and start to campaign locally on climate change. Put up posters and hold regular meetings. Decide together the best way that your group can get Ireland to reduce its greenhouse gas pollution.
Dublin FOE's latest campaign is on cutting energy use in schools, hospitals and other public sector buildings. Email firstname.lastname@example.org , phone Victoria at 086-1744938, or go to Dublin FOE on Facebook.
