Wandsworth Greens, led by Glyn Goodwin (Green MP candidate for Tooting) successfully petitioned Wandsworth Council to declare a Climate Emergency.
By working apolitically across the borough, our team of volunteers collected over 12,300 signatures - the biggest ever environmental petition in Wandsworth.
The 10,000 group continues to work with the council and local organisations to make sure that a climate action plans is embedded across Wandsworth.
Fair and effective local democracy depends on having certainty over who can stand and vote in local elections.
Government should make a commitment, now, that all EU citizens legally resident in the UK should retain their rights to stand as candidates and vote in council elections after Brexit. Sign the petition here.
