Come and tell Birmingham City Council that you want them to back a motion to Divest from Fossil Fuels!
This is a family event : bring a picnic, During the event there will be; windmill making, (divestment) flag making , dinosaur balloon modelling, face painting with striking impact/divestment symbol, play ‘Pass the motion’ (pass the parcel), listen to climate impact stories, giant carbon bubbles, climate change/divestment themed games –including parachute games.
Group photo in front of the Council house at 1pm - wear something orange - or wave your flag!
At the event:
- We will have an information board sharing some of the stories collected and explaining the case for divestment.
- We will be asking the public to fill in postcards which we will send on to their Councillors.
- There will be an awesome model 'nodding donkey' (used to raise crude oil from oil wells) which will deliver the cards into ‘the ground’ (bags for delivery!)
If you are able to help with any of the picnic activities that would be great if not then handing out flyers, manning the info board/nodding donkey, taking photos holding banners are all jobs which we need help with! You are welcome of course to just come along and enjoy your picnic!
