3. BE POLITICAL
Being politically engaged can be an amazing tool in making a difference. Everyone in the UK, over the age of 18, has the opportunity to vote for their choice of MP at least every 5 years and vote for representatives in local elections too. This is an opportunity to vote for a representative that you feel is not only going to take climate change and the environment seriously, but is going to do something about it. But political engagement is not limited to voting, and it certainly isn’t limited by how young you are. We need to ensure we hold our politicians accountable 365 days of the year, every year. You can do that by contacting your representatives, or attending constituency surgeries and meetings, where you will have an opportunity to raise any concerns you may have.
