Local Elections 2021 – Survey of Candidate Views

In the run up to the local elections in Greater Manchester on Thursday 6th May, Manchester Friends of the Earth are asking all candidates standing for election to let voters know what they think about key environmental issues. 

On 6th May, people in Greater Manchester have the opportunity to vote for the local councillors to represent them.  The local councillors elected will have to implement solutions to meet many social and environmental challenges during the next 5 years and beyond. These include rising transport & energy costs, traffic congestion, illegal levels of air pollution, ill health, low levels of physical activity, the loss of local democratic control of planning issues and the urgent need to drastically reduce climate-wrecking emissions.

We wouldn’t dream of telling people which way to vote but we think voters have the right to know where candidates stand on key environmental issues that will affect all our lives, such as the air pollution public health crisis and the need to create the jobs and skills training opportunities to tackle the youth unemployment, affordable housing and climate emergency.
