The announcement last week of a general election marks a significant moment for the climate crisis. There are 2 million people aged 18-30 who care about climate and will be most affected by it, but are not registered to vote. Their voices won’t be heard. Politicians need to know that people are registering to vote because of climate change.
Julie’s Bicycle, in partnership with The Comms Lab, is supporting a national campaign to motivate and inspire 2 million young people to register to vote, with climate as their main concern. It is important to stress that this is a non-partisan registration campaign to help drive the biggest climate and youth election turnout of all time.
There are just a few weeks until the registration deadline of 26 November, so if we want to seize this moment we need to do it fast.
