Our workplaces can be somewhere we make a difference to climate change. Wednesday 26 June is the International Trade Union Confederation's Global Day of Workplace Action: CPOW - Climate Proof Our Work. As our part of the worldwide drive to stabilise the planet at a 1.5 degree average temperature increase by 2030, sign up and invite your employer to a meeting to discuss how we can climate proof the work you currently do.
On 26 June CPOW is a small, practical way to show that our workplaces can make a positive difference to climate change. There are four steps we are asking workplaces to take:
1) Sign up to the World Day of Action and agree to have a meeting involving workers and your boss about what - however small - your workplace can do about climate change.
2) Then send a formal letter to your employer inviting them to a meeting. (We will send you a model letter to use).
3) Take a photo from the meeting on the 26th and post it on Facebook with the tag #CPOWnz.
4) Later, answer a short survey about what happened and how it went.
