I am passionate about our protecting our environment and tackling the threat of climate change.
I’m backing Labour’s call for an environment and climate emergency. I am working hard to protect our green belt and enhance our green spaces. I’ve opposed attempts by the government to override local democracy and allow fracking in our town. I’m working with local schools and Bury Council to make our town plastic free. I’m fighting to improve local public transport links and make our roads safer for cyclists to reduce reliance on cars. I’m working locally and nationally to make our air cleaner. I’ve joined with MPs from across Parliament to lobby the Prime Minister to introduce a net zero emissions target for 2050 and I am supporting the efforts of the Youth Now for Climate Change and Renewable Energy campaign to ensure government support and funding for renewable energies.
I want to do even more, developing a green manifesto for Bury and Britain – with your help.
In the coming months I’ll be bringing together stakeholders from across Bury to discuss ideas for a local and national manifesto to tackle climate change and protect our environment. Sign up to receive my e-newsletter below and be the first to hear the details.
