Climate Emergency & Elections

Published by Ben on

With the general election soon, we have the opportunity to challenge candidates about environmental issues. The more they are challenged about the climate emergency, the more likely whoever are elected as MPs will make it a priority in Parliament. Green Christian has put together an election pack giving ideas about how to get involved. With much of the election debate focusing on the NHS, taxation and immigration, there is a real risk that the climate emergency does not get the attention it needs.

One suggestion in the pack is to ask candidates if they support the Climate and Nature Bill, a bill aimed at tacking the climate emergency. We can ask our candidates whether they support the bill via this link. It’s a good way of showing them that voters care about the environment.

Another opportunity to show our concern for the environment is the Restore Nature Now march and Creation Cries Out service on Saturday 22 June. The march includes a coalition of climate and nature organisations (including the National Trust and the RSPB). Christian groups will be holding a service at 11am at the Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception in Mayfair and the march follows.

Please contact Trevor Tayleur (, 07910 504948) if you would like more details or to join the Parish’s Green and Fairtrade group. Everyone welcome – all ages!
