General Election 2019 Have your election candidates signed the climate pledge?

Mining. Fracking. Cutting down trees for no good reason.

If you thought these destructive practices were out of your control, think again...

Victory on fracking

After 8 years of campaigning by local groups and NGOs, the government has announced a moratorium on fracking.

This is a huge victory for the climate, and shows what can be achieved when communities join together for a common goal.

Of course Friends of the Earth always has, and always will, call for a full fracking ban and for the government to stop supporting fracking overseas, but now is a great moment to celebrate community action and what we have achieved.

General Election 2019

A General Election gives us the chance to make our voices heard on the issues that matter most.

This election, we need all parliamentary candidates (no matter what their political persuasion) to make climate breakdown their central issue.

From registering to vote, to lobbying your local representatives, there's plenty you can do to make sure climate breakdown is top of the agenda.


Meet the people fighting the climate crisis

It's not all up to you...

We understand that the climate crisis is overwhelming.

Shocking headlines, government deadlines – it can all feel a bit out of our reach.

But that doesn't mean that you can't make a difference. And that difference doesn't necessarily mean making expensive changes to your everyday life.

Listen to what our colleague Shaunna has to say...

Never miss a thing...
