Unpacking Environmentalism

What do people believe should be the priority for government action on the environment, and how should the Conservatives address these challenges?


Polling has shown that the environment is one of the issues that voters care about most, particularly younger voters. What is less well understood is what people think about when talking about the environment. A wide range of issues from deforestation and soil erosion to meat consumption and animal rights have all been described as environmental issues. In order to address environmental concerns, we must put the environmental debate in context and understand people's priorities and concerns.

Great Open Spaces: Environment Reception

A reception to celebrate our great open spaces and discuss the Government’s plans for safeguarding them


As ‘guardians and trustees’ of the Earth, we will celebrate what Baroness Thatcher saw as a key element of conservatism: the protection and appreciation of our natural environment. Regular interaction with the natural world has links to improving mental health, providing a break from fast-paced urban life and giving our children space to play outdoors. This event will celebrate this Government’s prioritisation of nature and wildlife and discuss future plans to enhance this protection.
