Elections 2023 Make climate a priority

From floods in Manchester to cyclones in Mozambique, the climate emergency is a global problem. But we believe solutions can be found in our local communities.

A series of elections will take place across England and Northern Ireland in May 2023.

This is an opportunity for local action groups to mobilise their communities, interrogate their electoral candidates and ensure climate action is embedded in the local political agenda for years to come.

Find out how you can help make climate a priority in these elections.
