Eye of the storm

Help fight climate breakdown Join Friends of the Earth

We're facing a climate emergency

Climate breakdown is affecting us all. Floods wash away homes, livelihoods and wildlife. Wildfires are raging. Polar icecaps are melting. Tragically, it's those doing the least to cause this crisis that are least able to weather the storms.

Millions of the world's poorest people are displaced while big businesses and politicians continue to pour fuel on the fire.

Time is running out in the fight to protect people and planet. But there’s still an opportunity to change our future – if we act now.

Join Friends of the Earth

Join thousands of others taking action to protect people and planet by donating a regular gift and becoming a member today. Our members have helped achieve milestone victories and establish key laws for our planet. Like launching the Climate Change Act 2008 - the world’s first climate change law – which paved the way for similar legislation around the world.

Thanks to our members, we’re currently:

 ✔️ Demanding better climate protection. In 2022 our legal team won a key court case against the UK government over their unlawful Net Zero Strategy. This means it must now create a much better plan for reducing carbon emissions.

✔️ Fighting dirty fossil fuels. We’re challenging the government’s approval of fossil fuel projects and fighting plans for an oil development in Horse Hill, Surrey, and a coal mine in Whitehaven, Cumbria.

✔️ Preventing airport expansions. We’ve taken the government to court in our ongoing legal challenge to prevent a climate-wrecking third runway at Heathrow.
