Demand #ClimateActionNow! Sign up to the thunderclap today:
A new Dáil has just been elected and a new Irish Government is being formed.
There is no time to lose: we need to call on them to take urgent action on climate change!
Join our social media campaign doing just that.
Targeting newly elected politicians, we’re asking students in post-primary schools, teachers and other Trócaire supporters and campaigners to get involved in our #ClimateActionNow action on Thunderclap.
Thunderclap is a social media platform that helps people be heard by saying something together.
It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flashmob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks.
Check it out: www.thunderclap.it.
Thunderclap will share the #ClimateActionNow message with social media networks on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr for everyone who signs up.
We are louder together so let’s make some noise!
The message that will go out across Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr is:
“Now is the time for the Irish Government to move towards a low carbon economy and renewable energy #ClimateActionNow”
The link to our Thunderclap is now live and you can sign up here:
To allow people time to share this link and to get as many people as possible to sign up, the Thunderclap will go out on social media on Wednesday the 20th of April.
Once the #ClimateActionNow message goes out, Trócaire will directly tweet newly elected politicians to let them know what 100s of young people and Trócaire supporters across Ireland are saying!
Our aim is to get #ClimateActionNow to trend across social media and to make action for climate justice a priority for Government.
This is a unique opportunity to be part of a campaign for climate justice with Trócaire and to be heard by those in decision-making positions by coming together with a loud clear voice for change!
