What you can do right now:
Vote for candidates in local and general elections who put the environment at the heart of their campaigns.
Tip: check how your local MP voted on environmental issues - if they're doing a good job, vote for them again at the next election.
Sign-up and support projects like MoreUnited that help any candidate, regardless of political party, who puts the environment (and other key values) at the heart of their campaigns.
These projects can help amplify your voice and make sure it's heard!
Found a local candidate who supports the environment? Help them campaign, spread the word to as many people as possible
No local candidates who care for the planet? Fill that gap and run for the position yourself!
Why is this important?
There are just 650 MP's representing the whole of the UK.
Just 650 people who have the power to influence and drive the large scale change needed to tackle climate change, and set an example for the rest of the world.
Currently, the government isn't doing enough to help. With just 12 years to limit the damage of climate change, they're still supporting fossil fuels and fracking. This needs to change
We desperately need each and every one of our representatives to be working together to solve this problem, and we have the power to make that happen. We just need to vote for the candidates who put the environment at the heart of their policies and campaigns.
