On 6 May 2021, millions of voters across the country will decide who will make up the next Scottish Parliament.
Members of the Scottish Parliament have the power to set the country on the right trajectory to tackle the climate and nature crises. Decisive action for Scotland’s native woods and trees is key to some of the most pressing problems facing our society. The elections are a crucial moment in determining the political leadership that will have the power to act ahead of COP26 and to reach Scotland's ambitious target to reduce 75% of greenhouse gases by 2030.
It’s vital that your future representatives make the right decisions, right now. Over the coming weeks, candidates in your constituency will be setting out their priorities. Putting native woods and trees high on their agendas is vital if Scotland is to have a truly green recovery from Covid-19 and a just transition to a net zero society. Native woods and trees must be a priority in party manifestos.
