Want to contact an MP about climate change issues?

Government Ministers & other leaders on climate change

The following Ministers and MPs have the power to make change happen – write a letter or flick them an email to let them know you expect them to pass a Zero Carbon Act

If you happen to live in their electorate – it might be useful to approach them as your local MP rather than a Government Minister. Your local MPs are in Parliament to represent YOU – they should listen and, at the very least, pass on your concerns to the relevant Minister. The good news is: Politicians do pay attention to people who live in their electoral district. It is relatively easy to set up a face-to-face meeting – just contact your local MPs electorate office and schedule an appointment at their next constituency ‘clinic’. You can then share your concern about climate change and ask them to #BackThePlan.
