Just 13,000 votes could decide who wins the election, and at the moment mining billionaires and climate denying politicians are using fear, misinformation and huge advertising spending to pit communities against each other in order to get elected.
We don’t have millions to spend on ads, but we do have something far more powerful; a movement of people committed to taking action on climate. The most important factor in deciding someone’s vote isn’t the misinformation they see online or the scaremongering leaflets they receive in the mail; it’s the conversations they have with those around them.
Our best shot at making sure candidates ready to tackle the climate crisis are elected this year is making sure everyone we know - our friends, our families, our school and work mates- know exactly where parties sit on real climate action.
We know talking to people about voting for climate can be intimidating, and it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why we’ve compiled a bunch of handy resources and a step-by-step process to getting everyone around you to vote climate.
