This is the perfect day for newbies to come out and try campaigning as this is the easiest place to campaign.
There will be loads to kids to talk to and inspire and lots of interested grown-ups too.

We will explain our campaign to kids by playing the pin the donkey's tail game (with a blindfold).

Except that they will have to pin the penguin in the Antarctic instead ;-)

It is usually super busy so we need as many people as possible, especially between 11 and 4.
We will be telling the lovely people of South East London about our campaign to create the largest marine sanctuary in the Antarctic ocean

Here is more about the campaign 

Sitting on one end of our big blue planet is a thriving ocean where whales, seals and penguins live and raise their young: the Antarctic Ocean.

But a warming climate and expanding commercial fishing industry are threatening this area and its iconic creatures. The recent news that just two penguin chicks survived out of a colony of nearly 40,000 birds is a sign that something’s very wrong in the Antarctic.

The good news is: we have a chance to create the world’s largest protected area – a massive Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary.

This would create a safe haven for incredible wildlife like whales and penguins, putting the waters off-limits to the industrial fishing vessels sucking up the tiny shrimp-like krill, on which all Antarctic life relies. Not only that, ocean sanctuaries ensure healthy oceans which soak up carbon dioxide and help us to tackle climate change.
