Open Letter For Council To Decarbonise Buses

A green transport campaign to gather with various interested groups within our area (such as universities, green transport groups and trade unions) to create an open letter for our local council to implement decarbonised buses into our city. We initially conversed with many interested groups and gained support but after a strategy meeting with our MP, we decided to capitalise on the upcoming local elections as councillors were more likely to sign our open letter in light of this, especially if they held a swing seat. We gained many signatures and using this our MP went to a major bus company in the city who promised to phase out diesel buses by 2022.
