General Election 2019

Your toolkit for climate action

What we want

We’re facing a climate emergency. We have a short window of time to avoid total climate breakdown. So we need to make tackling the climate crisis a top priority this election. But experience tells us that if we don’t put climate at the top of the agenda, politicians won’t either.

Have you spoken to your parliamentary candidates about the climate crisis?

Talk to your candidates

Meeting with your parliamentary candidates provides an important opportunity to get them to pledge their support for urgent climate action. It also gives you the space to explore their position on key environmental issues and helps you build relationships for future campaigning.

Election podcast

With increased understanding of the climate emergency – and frequent strikes and protests – will this election turn out to be the UK's first climate election?

Friends of the Earth's Climate campaigner Muna Suleiman speaks to guests about election fatigue and what to ask our local candidates in the podcast "How to Save the Planet".
