Our local action groups
Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland has a network of hundreds of local action groups.
These groups are run by thousands of people just like you from all types of backgrounds, including nurses, students and grandparents. They bring people together to make their communities more climate-friendly and fight against projects that damage nature, the environment and the climate.
