Stuff to report on
First and foremost, the best way you can help MCM is by being out there doing local climate change and resilience stuff. Then tell us (and everyone else) about it.
If you hear of a story/snippet/outrage, send it in. Unless you tell us otherwise, we will assume it is anonymous. We will not reveal our sources (but we’re not gonna take your word for it, either and print any old thing. We could get sued! And we’re not gonna cover the internal party feuds, so use someone else for your leak wars).
Who should we interview? What should we ask them? What stories do you think we should focus on.
Information about what other councils are doing
That’d be handy!
We will train you up if you need it. But we need you to commit to a minimum of 4 months of writing for us (a few hours a month – no biggie).
We might send you to a council meeting (the stay-awake caffeine tablets are on us), to interview a campaigner, to do a “vox pop” in your local shopping centre.
Every month we do a systematic review of the previous issue. We want to know what a “normal” person, who isn’t into climate change at all, thinks of MCM. You have friends and family who fit that bill. Could you get them to read it, and report back to us their thoughts and comments.
