Your MP cares what you think. Whatever response you get back—we know that each email sent calling for the Climate & Ecology Bill has a real impact, and builds pressure for your local MP to join our campaign.
Will you write to your MP today? The more personal your message, the more likely you are to hear back. But don’t worry, you don’t need to be an expert, just let your MP know why you care about the environmental crises and (perhaps) why you think locking joint-up action on the climate and nature crises into legislation is critical.
Write from the heart but—if you do want more factual information check—out our FAQs, or you can use the sample email below as a starting point.
If your MP already backs the Bill, then do write to thank them. You can find a list of supporting MPs, here.
And—critically—please keep in touch and let us know when you hear back from your MP by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!

As one of your constituents, I’m writing about a vitally important matter—the need to ensure that the UK has the strongest laws in place to reverse the destruction of nature, and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in line with 1.5°C. Two key targets that are essential to the UK’s future.
Specifically, I’m writing to ask if you will support the Climate & Ecology Bill, introduced in the House of Commons on 10 May. It is a vital, new, cross-party proposal—drafted by world-leading scientists—to ensure that the UK plays its full role in tackling biodiversity loss and climate change.
Though the UK has a record of environmental legislation, from the Climate Change Act 2008 to the 2050 Target Amendment Order 2019, there is a gap between what is currently being delivered—and what the Government needs to do to act in line with the latest science.
The Climate and Ecology Bill, or CE Bill, would:
1) Provide a clear, joined-up plan—the crises in climate and nature are deeply intertwined, requiring a plan that considers both together.
Reduce UK emissions in line with the Paris Agreement—ensuring that UK emissions are reduced rapidly, for the best chance of limiting warming to 1.5°C.
2) Halt and reverse the decline in nature—setting nature measurably on the path to recovery by 2030, as agreed at COP15.
3) Ensure that the UK takes responsibility for our overseas footprint—both emissions and ecological.
4) Involve the public—giving people a say in finding a fair way forward through a ‘climate and nature assembly’.
Thank you for considering your support for the CE Bill. I look forward to hearing from you, and if possible, please copy email@example.com in your reply.
