What's Going On Here?
The next 10 years are critical for climate change action. The new government will have the power to halt climate threatening activities and demand climate and ecological justice for generations to come.
There is a sleeping army of 9 million people who are not registered to vote in the UK. Go register. Go vote. The deadline to register is midnight on the 26th November 2019.
What Does This Mean?
High electoral turnout is a good sign of health for democracy and the planet. In the era of climate crisis, we cannot overstate the importance of environmentally conscious youth using their vote to elect MPs supporting more ambitious climate action.
This election will decide who is in charge of the government, in theory, until May 2024. This is 4 years into the climate decade, where the most significant decarbonisation is required if we are to meet our commitments under the Paris Agreement - “net zero” greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
