Get ready for the General Election (Friends of the Earth)

Join this webinar to find out how you can campaign for environmental justice as we head towards a general election.

This will be a key year for our movement as people across the country will head to the polls to vote for their future MPs. It is vital that we use this moment to amplify our calls for immediate action on the climate and nature crises, and win commitments from our current and future decision makers so that, whoever wins the next election, will deliver policies that work for people and planet.

During the session you’ll hear about how you can make environmental justice a priority this election – from meeting with election candidates to running a hustings to making a splash in your local community. You’ll also have a chance to share your ideas to help shape how we collectively will demand a fairer, greener and more just world.
