Campaigns

We campaign on a wide variety of local issues, with the focus shifting over time in response to external factors and the interests of our members.  If you would like to get involved or help with a campaign we can offer support and also have access to resources from Friends of the Earth.  Why not join us – campaigning can be fun and the more members we have the more we can achieve.

Below are a selection of campaigns that we are, or have recently been, involved with.  You can follow our current campaigns on our social media pages.
