Local Elections

Your toolkit for climate action

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, local and mayoral elections scheduled for May 2020 have been postponed until 2021.

The health and wellbeing of people and planet is at the heart of what we do, and we urge everyone to look after themselves. Where appropriate, we'll keep pushing for commitments on climate at local and national level. You can do the same, by lobbying your council to adopt a Climate Action Plan.

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.
