The ‘Change is Now’ bus tour started in Bournemouth and toured around the South West including to Exeter, Teignmouth and Taunton.
Bringing rebels and creativity and music with it, the tour was a great opportunity to do outreach. We gave out a lot of leaflets , did lots of art blocking and signed up people to ‘The Big One’ next Spring. Plus, we had lots of people coming over for a chat!
One of our most successful outreach tools is the Citizens surveys board. Surveys are so important! Too often, our voices go unheard, but by simply joining in one of these surveys, you can easily get involved in some direct democracy. Everyone that wanted to vote was given a sticker and these were put on the board, The majority of votes for ‘How concerned are you about the climate crisis’ were ‘Seriously concerned’ or ‘Terrified’.
The majority of those surveyed also said that the Government isn’t doing enough about the Climate Crisis and most want a Citizens Assembly to decide how to tackle it!
Thank you toall the rebels for making the tour such a success and to everyone else for coming along and getting involved!
