The Commitment works to put the climate and the natural world higher up the political agenda. They do this by showing them how much voters care. They want to give politicians a powerful reason to act on the climate and the natural world.
Steps to making your Commitment:
- You promise to vote in every election you are eligible to take part in (local and national) with a healthy planet at the heart of your decision.
- You write a personal message to explain why you’re making your Commitment
Their survey of over 3,000 people demonstrated that there is strong public support for political action. UK politicians say they want to know how the voting public feel about climate change and biodiversity loss.
