Friends of the Earth is an international community dedicated to the protection of the
natural world and the wellbeing of everyone in it.
We lead campaigns, provide resources and information, and promote alternative
solutions to create a cleaner, healthier, fairer world for everyone, for today and
generations to come.
In the UK, we’ve been responsible for making recycling not just a household word, but a
household habit. We successfully campaigned for the world’s first climate change laws,
which paved the way for similar legislation around the world. Our combined strength has
meant we have been able to push back against drilling for fossil fuels in land that belongs
to all of us.
Combining the efforts of communities all over the world enables us to make an even
greater difference together, meaning local initiatives are transformed into global impact.
