Dear [Name of your MP], 

I am writing to you as a constituent of [your constituency] because I want to help accelerate action on climate change.   

[Insert what moved you to write this, this might be general concern about climate change or a particular environmental issue you care about] 

I’ve already seen the impacts of climate change in our local area, from the extreme temperatures of this summer’s heatwave and flooding to [insert some changes you have seen].  

A commitment to ending our country’s contribution to climate change has been supported across all parties. Yet, according to a recent Green Alliance report, the government is still off track to meet net zero targets.  

Will you commit to championing policies that ensure we have a safer, more just and cleaner future? Public concern for protecting the people, places and things we love from climate change is growing and the demand for action is increasing. According to a new global survey nearly 60% of young people who were approached said they were extremely worried and three quarters of them said the future was frightening.  From Hubbub’s recent polling (61%) of the total UK population are concerned about the impact of climate change.  

There are five things that can be put in place right now to cut emissions and get us on track to net zero. On behalf of everyone in [insert your constituency here], will you champion policies in parliament that ensure: 

  • Our homes are warmer, greener and cheaper to run 
  • Public transport, walking and cycling are accessible to everyone  
  • We boost the circular economy and halve resource consumption  
  • Sustainable farming and land restoration practices are prioritised and subsidised 
  • Increase renewables capacity 

2021 is a huge year for the future of our planet - and our country. We are hosting COP26 climate summit in Glasgow and the world is looking to us to set an example.   

I look forward to hearing from you.  

Yours sincerely, 

[your name] 

On behalf of [insert local organisation(s) if relevant]
