How do we try to make a difference?

Our current priority campaigns include: 

  1. The Clean Air Campaign (FoE's campaign on air pollution). We seek to improve London's bad air quality, thereby improving people's health and wellbeing. 

  2. The Divestment Campaign. We urge our local council's pension fund to sell their fossil fuel investments, supporting the fight against global climate change.

  3. Promoting Bees and Biodiversity in local parks, fields and cemeteries. 

  4. "Anti-Fracking in UK", where we partnered with the Raised Voices Choir to protest against Barclays, who finance UK fracking projects. (NOTE: Barclays have now withdrawn their funding from Third Energy, a Yorkshire Fracking Company)

  5. "Stop the third runway at Heathrow" as we urge our Council to be more pro-active on this topic.

 

We'd love to have you onboard & we promise not to bite..! 

We're always looking expand our team and raise more awareness on environmental issues. We're very interested in new ways of doing things (campaigns, apps, events) and welcome people from all backgrounds and walks of life, so please get in touch with us.
