Local politicians are taking the plunge and are starting to sign up to our ‘Climate Emergency Pledge’. The idea is to provide a public way of showing their support for declaring a climate emergency in their local council. It’s a great way of demonstrating leadership and encouraging others to get behind the campaign.
Kirsty Lord, Lib Dem County Council member for Hassocks and Burgess Hill South was the first to take the pledge back in early March.
More recently, Labour candidates in the upcoming Horsham District Council Election, Caroline Fife and Lorraine Fowlie, followed suit (see the headline photo).
See if you can get your local councillors and local election candidates to take the pledge. The pledge card can be downloaded here.
Just print it out. Ask them to sign it. Take a photo with them holding it up. Then share on social media – using the following tags & links:
And it makes sense to tag in the relevant local council too – so they get to see it. So for example: @westsussexcc or @horshamdc of @adurworthingcouncils
Pledge cards aren’t just for politicians. Anyone can show their support by taking the pledge – so why not give it a go!
