Heathrow victory: The power of community

We're facing uncertain and stressful times with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over the coming weeks we'll try to support you as best we can, from highlighting safe ways to connect online with your community or local group, to recommendations on books and films if you find yourself with more time on your hands.

For starters, here's our podcast series. It features a range of topics and guests, so dip in and distract yourself. 

Heathrow victory

In February 2020 we won a mammoth legal battle against the expansion of Heathrow Airport.

The win was largely due to years of campaigning by local groups, incredible support from our supporters and many, many hours of hard work by our Legal and Planning Team along with our solicitors and barristers. 

Head of Legal Will Rundle explains why it's a great "win" for climate justice.

Victory on fracking

After 8 years of campaigning by local groups and NGOs, the government has announced a moratorium on fracking.

This is a huge victory for the climate, and shows what can be achieved when communities join together for a common goal.

Of course Friends of the Earth always has, and always will, call for a full fracking ban and for the government to stop supporting fracking overseas, but now is a great moment to celebrate community action and what we have achieved.

Never miss a thing...
