Incredible! Our election campaign, The Nation Needs You!, has helped us to reach over 50,000 voters and hundreds of organisations from across the UK who want real change on Climate and Nature – now we are ready for the next stage of our campaign.

Over the coming weeks we will be updating our websites and launching the next campaign on the road to make the Climate and Nature Bill law – 100 Days.

With a new Government, a new Parliament, we are continuing to keep the pressure up for science-led, joined-up policy to tackle the Climate and Nature crises.

Dear Candidates,

We are writing to you ahead of the General Election to ask you to back the Climate and Nature Bill if you are elected to Parliament.

The Climate and Nature Bill is backed by 51,854 members of the public and 1,657 incredible organisations, politicians, and scientists from across the UK.

As local residents, we're alarmed by the damage that's being inflicted on our community, livelihoods, health, and homes as a result of the climate-nature crisis.

Recently, South Shropshire experienced devastating impacts from flooding which saw the tragic casualty of a local resident in flood waters. As local residents and business owners, we are increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of flooding events, as their frequency continues to rise throughout the UK. [Source]

Across the nation, disasters like this are contributing to the rising cost of living. The higher prices we are paying for food, energy, transport, and consumer goods are all linked to our dependence on fossil fuels, the knock on effects of runaway climate change, and the destruction of nature.

But there is a solution. The Climate and Nature Bill is the legislation we need to tackle this growing crisis. The CAN Bill will help us build a healthier, more prosperous, nature-rich UK—as well as boosting new jobs and skills for people in South Shropshire. It will make us:

  • Better off - by ensuring our homes are properly insulated, and our energy is cleaner, less expensive and more secure.
  • Healthier - by reducing air pollution, and by encouraging healthier, more sustainable food consumption, while supporting our farmers and food producers.
  • Happier - by protecting our green spaces and the wildlife that depends on them, ensuring everyone has access to nature and increased wellbeing.
  • More resilient - by reducing the threats from extreme weather, such as flooding, erosion, and crop failure.

Will you be the hero we need in South Shropshire? All you have to do is say: "Yes, I'm backing the Climate and Nature Bill!"

Yours sincerely,

The voters of South Shropshire
