"It’s good to get involved with something that’s positive and constructive, rather than falling into the trap of thinking there’s nothing you can do."
On top of helping out by campaigning with us you’ll also get something back:
You’ll see that you can make a difference and feel good about it!
You'll meet like minded people
You'll keep up-to-date with Friends of the Earth's campaigns; and
You'll get lots of opportunities to get training to help you to understand environmental issues and gain new skills, such as lobbying politicians, effective photography and talking to the media.
Whatever your background or walk of life, we will find ways of helping you to put your skills and interests to good use. As an active member, you might find yourself doing any of the following with the group:
- Writing news updates
- Talking to the public at a stall
- Researching issues to support campaigns
- Media work via Facebook and twitter or with local newspapers
- Lobbying our local MPs
- Making campaigning materials and props
- Helping out at public meetings
You don't have to be a member to attend our meetings, although we will encourage you to join when you've visited a few times. Membership still costs only £7.50 a year!
