Using advocacy to help protect the environment
Our advocacy method is not about confrontation; in fact quite the reverse, we gently influence those with power to bring about change. It is important to first find issues which both parties agree on. Spend time supporting them and building good relationships. Once this is done they are more likely to be sympathetic to requests for changes.
Part of our missions is to carry out advocacy work through speaking out against injustice, defending the cause of poor people, holding those in power to account, and empowering people to speak out for themselves.
We are able to influence people, policies, structures and systems in order to bring about change and communicate with those in power, persuading them to act in more just and equitable ways. At the core, it is about building relationships, tackling the root causes of poverty and promoting justice.
