IDEAS FOR ACTION
The Climate Parliament helps good ideas to travel from one country to another. MPs are informed about cutting-edge policies and initiatives anywhere in the world which are advancing climate action, renewable energy and sustainable transport. MPs can choose a proposal that interests them, then go to their head of government, ministers or officials, and say, “That country is doing it, maybe we should consider doing the same.” The Climate Parliament and our partners can provide original policy documents from governments and agencies which are playing a leading role on that issue, as examples of best practice.
Here are some actions that Members of Parliament could take. Click on the links below the headings to see examples. If you are not a legislator, you might consider writing to your own parliamentary representatives on one of these issues to encourage them to share the examples with your government.
