Contacting councillors

Friends of the Earth Scotland, Common Weal and UNISON Scotland are asking council candidates and their parties to commit to:

  • Publicly commit to divestment from fossil fuels.
  • Increase council pension investment in renewable energy and social housing

To email sitting councillors visit Write To Them and follow the instructions. You can find a template email message here.

If you are thinking of meeting your local councillor use the step-by-step guide for lobbying councillors produced by Friends of the Earth Scotland.

If councillors wish to help lead a campaign for divestment they can find advice in this in-depth guide for local councillors.
