Write to your MEP
Schreiben Sie Ihrem Abgeordneten
Structure your correspondence
A clear structure will help to keep your letter
or email easy to follow and will perhaps
even keep it brief! You might wish to follow
the following structure:
- Introduction: will the MEP know who
you are? If not, you need to introduce
yourself and briefly explain why you are
- Interest: why should the MEP be interested?
Find a fact or anecdote that will
- State the issue: how serious is it, who
does it concern, how will it serve the MEP's constituents' interests?
- Describe your solution and/or ask for

and what you want the MEP to
do. This is the crucial part of your correspondence
so make what you are
asking for very clear and not open to
- Ask for a response: and make sure the
place to send it to is readily visible!
If, despite following all our advice, you do
not hear back after a couple of weeks, either
re-send or give the MEP's office a call
and ask whether they received it. Remember:
you catch more bees with honey!
