LONDON MAYORAL AND LONDON ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS

May 2021

We asked the candidates for the London Assembly for Croydon & Sutton to take a pledge to put the climate crisis first when considering the Mayor's decisions. This was in line with Friends of the Earth's Climate Action Plan for London. 

The pledge read:

“If I am elected to the London Assembly, I will make the climate crisis a top priority in considering all the Mayor of London's decisions, and push the Mayor for tougher action on climate, as illustrated in Friends of the Earth's Climate Action Plan for London.”

We successfully met with two of the four main party candidates individually (Green and Lib Dem) and held a public virtual hustings with all four candidates.
