The toolkit contains;

A Google spreadsheet containing name, party, ward and, where known, email address  of every candidate .  For those candidates without emails, canvassing leaflets coming through your letter box will usually show candidate’s email addresses.  Alternatively you can visit the Derbyshire County Council website to find candidates’s addresses and simply post a letter to them.  See:

https://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/council/elections/candidates/county-council-election-candidates.aspx

 

A draft email to send to candidates in your area for you to personalise asking them to sign the climate action pledge.

Links to the Friends of the Earth guidance on how to get the best out of meeting  or conversation with your candidate.

And lots more useful stuff to help you.
