The government promised that our environment would be better for the next generation, and has now proposed legal targets to make sure this happens. Now’s your chance to tell it what you think.
We’ll be honest. We don’t think these proposals are great. This blog summarises why, and notes below explain more. And for full transparency, you can read the government’s proposals in its own words.
The government's running a public consultation through Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), so we’d like you to tell it how you feel and what you think. Why is it important to you that nature is better for the next generation, and do you think these plans do the job?
It's important that a lot of people respond to this consultation in their own words, to make it clear that we each care about the environment getting better.
We've set this form up to help you quickly and easily let the government know what you think about its plans.
- Part 1 asks for your overall views
- The next 4 parts give you a chance to give specific views on the 4 big problems these proposals are meant to fix: waste, air pollution, water pollution, and nature's decline. You can choose which areas to respond to.
- The final steps ask for some personal details so that the government can count your response.
- You’ll be able to view and edit your submission when you’ve finished, and add any further information.
- It will take about 5 minutes to complete the compulsory parts and roughly 5 minutes per optional part. Please make sure you click “Submit email” at the end so your submission is saved and counted.
