Social Media for Change

How can social media create change?

Social media is the new town square. It’s where people virtually meet, share and discuss ideas. Politicians and candidates listen to the mood on social media to help inform their politics, so just like setting up a meeting with your MP, using social media provides us with an opportunity to display community support for more clean, renewable energy.

Community Outreach


We know our politicians are motivated to act when they see strong community support demonstrated locally. That's why reaching out to people in your community and growing the Solar Citizens movement is so important.

This guide is full of ideas, tips and resources to help you reach out to others. So let’s get our sun-powered future happening!

Meet Your MP


One of the most effective ways you can raise your voice for solar is by meeting and talking about it face-to-face with your local member of parliament.

This page provides a step-by-step guide to arranging and having an impactful meeting with your MP, as well as templates you can use to make it easy for you.
