I’ve just made my Commitment to vote for a healthy planet!
What does my Commitment mean?
Many politicians say that they don’t act on climate and nature because there isn’t enough demand for action from their constituents. But we know this isn’t true, people do care.
With listening at the heart of what they do, The Commitment has found that UK citizens want the Government to do more on climate change, but that there is widespread mistrust of politicians and the political system. They also discovered that people of colour and those from lower income backgrounds often care more about the planet and actually do more. So why are these voices so often excluded in mainstream politics and environmental movements?
The Commitment is collecting Commitments from all sections of society, where individuals promise to vote with a healthy planet at the heart of their decision and explain why they are doing so. They then take all the Commitments from each area to local politicians, showing that there is strong, diverse and popular demand for more action. Our leaders will have no choice but to listen, and act.
Maybe you’re into birds like me, maybe you have family in countries that are being hit the hardest by climate change, or perhaps you want your local area to have cleaner air and fewer cars? Make your Commitment now and show politicians that you care about a healthy planet!
I’ve made mine, will you?
