Become a Campaign Champion
As an RSPB campaigner, you can make your voice heard on issues you care about.
A beginners guide to campaigning
What is an RSPB campaigner?
The main aims of being an RSPB campaigner are to remind your MP, or local decision-maker, that environmental issues are important and to urge them to take positive action.
As a constituent and a consumer, you can influence people who make some pretty big decisions. By saying the right thing the right way, you can make others take action for nature.
You'll also be inspiring your local community to take action as you'll be building support and raising awareness of our campaigns and appeals.
If you'd like to step up for nature and really make a difference, then we've got an exciting volunteer role for you to do just that.
As a Campaign Champion, you will:
- Write letters or emails to a politician or a local paper.
- Distribute campaign materials.
- Use social media (such as Facebook and Twitter) to promote our campaigns.
- Take an online action, such as signing a petition.
- Build support for our petitions, online and offline.
When we contact you about our campaigns, we'll send you all the necessary information, explaining the issues and the key points. We'll give you all the materials you need.
We'll also include details of where to send any letters or emails and tips on making them as effective as possible.
We're here to help you
When you become a Campaign Champion there's plenty of help on hand.
Whenever we contact you about a campaign, we'll send you all the information you need to get to grips with the issue, plus our Campaigns Team are available to answer any questions you have.
Our downloadable introduction guide gives you useful tips on how to campaign effectively. It is designed for you to dip in and out of to get the information you want, as well as a handbook for those of you living in Scotland with a bit more information about our Scottish campaigns.
You can also contact us if you have an idea of something you think we should be acting on by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01767 680551.
