Do local elections matter?

How to Save the Planet

On 6th May polls open for local elections around England and Wales, for communities to vote for their next Mayor, Metro Mayor, local council and Senedd representatives. 
But interest in local elections can be low, with the power of your local representatives to make big decisions for our planet often get overlooked. 

This episode we spoke to Connie and Jackie, local campaigners in Friends of the Earth's network of grassroots groups. They talk to us about what they want to see as a priority for local candidates, how they got involved in local action and what gives them hope.
