Your article would go on the new Greenpeace UK website which has a flexible CMS that allows for optional multimedia and data capture forms to be embedded. Brief:
- Greenpeace has produced a manifesto for how the UK can become carbon neutral and stay within 1.5 degrees warming. https://www.greenpeace.org.uk/climatemanifesto/ It’s a long and dense policy document written for MPs and other policy wonks - but has some excellent information in it so we want to make it more widely accessible
- Write an article about 1 of the 10 themes in the manifesto that explains some of the issues in a more accessible and digestible way than what is currently there. 300-600 words
- Target audiences: existing supporters who want to use this tool to lobby their local MP + potential new supporters who we want to convince that we have solutions to how to tackle the climate emergency
- Feel free to peruse media.greenpeace.org to find some images to use alongside any text, and also Greenpeace’s Youtube channel youtube.com/greenpeaceuk for any other multimedia you might want to embed. Here is our Style Guide for further flavour: https://style.greenpeace.org.uk/
- There is also a petition calling on the government to start acting like it’s a climate emergency which can be embedded on the page
- You can choose the author/voice for this article to be anyone, inside or outside of Greenpeace, so think about what kind of tone might make for an engaging read
