We’re launching The Big Issue’s Future Generations Pledge this week – and we need your help to get MPs to back it.
Labour’s Jess Phillips, Luciana Berger of the Lib Dems and the Greens’ Caroline Lucas have all thrown their weight behind the pledge, which asks politicians to ensure that decisions they make today prevent the potential problems of the future from ever materialising.
While we wait for Lord John Bird to reintroduce the Future Generations Bill when parliament returns after the election, we need you to get in touch with the political candidates in your area to ask them to take the pledge.
THE BIG ISSUE’S FUTURE GENERATIONS PLEDGE
“If elected as a Member of Parliament on December 12 2019, I pledge to use my voice, and my vote, to:
- ACT TODAY FOR TOMORROW
Working to prevent problems, including the climate crisis and poverty, from happening instead of dealing in short-term, political emergencies.
