General Election 2024 – what are your candidates’ views? #GE2024

In the run up to the General Election on Thursday 4th July 2024, Manchester Friends of the Earth will be asking the parliamentary candidates standing for election in Greater Manchester to let voters know what they think about key environmental issues.

On 4 July 2024, people across the country will head to the polls to vote for their future MPs. This is a key moment for our movement, as whoever wins the next election will set the course for whether the UK meets crucial climate targets, safeguards our health and wellbeing now, and protects our planet for future generations.

We need to use this opportunity to mobilise our communities, build and strengthen relationships with our current and future decision makers, and demand that action on climate and nature is embedded into the political agenda for years to come.
