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.
They want to
- change individuals’ voting habits
- persuade people to commit to vote for the politicians who will prioritise climate change and the natural world.
- act as a bridge between citizens and politicians.
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.
West Midlands Lead Sophie O’Connell is currently running a pilot project in the West Midlands to coincide with the upcoming West Midlands Mayoral election in May 2021.
The Commitment is not linked to any political party. It operates within Caplor Horizons, a registered charity in England and Wales.
