We’re getting out the climate vote in Kingswood – here’s how to get involved

All eyes are on the upcoming by-election in Kingswood. This is Project Climate Vote’s first real opportunity to show all political parties that we want more action on climate and nature, not less.


There’s going to be a by-election in Kingswood on 15 February.

Here’s what you need to know:

Why is there a by-election in Kingswood?

Chris Skidmore, the Conservative MP for Kingswood, recently resigned.

Skidmore wrote the government’s net zero review. And so his resignation came after the Prime Minister announced plans to force any future government to expand oil and gas drilling every year, against advice from scientists and energy experts. 

Why is the by-election important?

Political parties will be paying attention to what happens here in Kingswood. Voters in the constituency have a unique opportunity to send a signal to all politicians – people want more action on the climate crisis, not less. 

Project Climate Vote volunteers’ work in Kingswood will also be a taste of what’s to come before the general election, which will happen later this year.

The Kingswood Project Climate Vote Campaign

We want to show that the people of Kingswood care about the climate, so we’re going to recruit thousands of climate voters before the February by-election.

Greenpeace volunteers will be out canvassing every weekend, up until the election, as part of Project Climate Vote.

Here’s how to get involved:

1. Get trained to become a door-knocker

Ready to make a difference? Sign up for a door-knocking event in Kingswood. If this is your first time, we’ll get you trained up. 15 February will be here before you know it!


2. Attend or host a canvassing event in Kingswood

We’ll need all hands on deck these next few weeks. Grab a coat, and a friend, and head out to a Kingswood event. We’ll see you there!

If you can only make one event, make it the Kingswood Weekend of Action. Project Climate Vote organisers and new recruits will gather in Kingswood for the whole weekend to canvass, flyer, and chat with voters in the area.

3. Pledge to be a Climate Voter

If you haven’t already, pledge to vote with climate in mind at the next election.
