Press release

A few tips:

  • We would encourage you to personalise the press release as much as possible to increase the chance of It being picked up. For instance, has your council passed a climate emergency motion but now needs to follow through with the action needed?
  • Do add information about your group in the footnotes, it’s also a good place to promote any upcoming events you have planned after the climate strikes.
  • You can usually find contact details for local press in print newspapers themselves or by searching for them on the Internet.
  • Follow individual journalists on social media if you’re struggling to get a reply.
  • Invite local media to the climate strikes. It’ll probably be on their radar, but explicitely inviting them to join you on the Strike is a fantastic opportunity to create or strengthen relationships with local journalists.
  • You can leverage relationships built with journalists ahead of the Climate Strike to secure coverage following it – especially if you have good images.
