One Green Gov: Share your idea for how to combat climate change

Open to public servants and partners | Register interest by January 31


Apolitical is partnering with One Team Gov to maximise the impact of the Green Gov conference in London on 22 January 2020.

To do this, we invite you to share your insights and write an article for Apolitical. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive overview of the discussions from the day, and a point of departure to take these conversations further.

How to Register

To get started, all you need to do is register interest here before January 31.

When you register, you will be asked to write your article idea in one sentence, which will be sent to Apolitical’s member editor Anders Christensen. If your pitch is selected, you will receive professional editing assistance and feedback to help turn your pitch into a 700-900 words article.

We will prioritise articles that have actionable and practical ideas for how policymakers, public servants and the public sector can become more sustainable.

Some possible article ideas

  • Ideas and tips that will help public servants and teams be more sustainable
  • Concrete actions governments can take to combat climate change
  • Cases of the teams and projects that are at the forefront of the climate movement

Who can enter?

Public servants, policymakers, or people in academia or the third sector who work on policy or closely with government who have attended the One Green Gov conference.

Registration closes: 31 January, 2020

Why write?

The conference will only achieve a real impact if we manage to tap into our collective creativity and share insights with a wider audience. By writing about what you have learned, you can be a green thought leader and make a real difference.

Unsure what to write about? Here are 3 resources to get you started:

  • See One Team Gov’s blog for examples about what to write about
  • See Apolitical’s guide to contributors for more tips on how to write a great article
  • Why not reach out to someone you met at the conference and brainstorm ideas? We encourage co-authored articles to get a diversity of perspectives
