MOBILISING ACROSS THE DIVIDE

BUILDING A SUPER MAJORITY OF STRONG SUPPORT

Climate change shouldn’t be a right or left issue. Big, fast action requires support across the political spectrum. How do we engage with peoples’ concerns and fears about their jobs, identity and security to breakdown the barriers to achieve a supermajority of support?

“There’s no shortage of research that shows people are worried about climate change. The problem is not people thinking it’s a problem, the problem is what are people willing to do about it.“
