Green Alliance’s Climate Leadership Programme aims to give members of parliament the knowledge and skills they need to lead a proactive and ambitious climate change agenda.
Constituency Voices, part of the Programme, works with small groups of MPs on low carbon initiatives and policy within their constituencies, helping them to take climate action to the national level.
In 2013 we focussed on community energy, with MPs in Edinburgh, Sheffield and Wells; and on the City Deals programme, with MPs in Swindon, Stockton and Warwickshire. This year, we focussed on climate science and impacts, looking in particular at the aftermath of the extreme weather events of the 2013-14 winter, with workshops in Nottingham, Eastleigh and Truro.
In the run-up to the 2015 election, Green Alliance will once again be running sessions for parliamentary candidates and new MPs. More details on the programme are here.
