Achieving Change Through Collective Action: Lessons from the Marriage Equality Campaign


What is campaigning and why does advocacy work?

The outcomes of COP26 have made one thing clear: the time for urgent, united action on climate change is now. So how can individuals, organisations and communities work together to influence politicians to take climate action?

Veterinarians for Climate Action are excited to welcome Brooke Horne, co-founder of the Equality Campaign, the lead organisation for ‘Yes’ in the 2017 Marriage Equality Postal Survey. In this presentation, Brooke walks us through what it took to build and win a national campaign. Brooke was then joined by VfCA’s CEO, Al Foster Vander Elst, for an open conversation on the lessons that can be applied to the climate action movement.
