About Us

When and Where


Harrogate and District Friends of the Earth are part of a national network of over 200 local Friends of the Earth groups throughout the country. 

Our group consists entirely of volunteers, and our campaigns are funded by membership, individual donations and charitable grants. We always welcome new supporters and active members, so please come along to one of our regular meetings and get involved!

Monthly meetings are currently held at the Friends Meeting House, 12a Queen Parade, Harrogate, but the day and venue can vary to suit members, so if you aren't on the mailing list call Harrogate Friends of the Earth 01423 541528 or email us to confirm the date and venue of the next meeting.

Over the past few years Harrogate Friends of the Earth have achieved a number of successes in the local community. We successfully lobbied Harrogate Borough Council to become the first in the UK to adopt FOE's 40% by 2020 'Get Serious About CO2' target. Harrogate Friends of the Earth initiated and was central to the successful ‘Harrogate Car Free Day’. We played a small part nationally in persuading local MPs to support a strong Climate Bill and getting their initial support for the Marine Bill. We are currently working with the Council to achieve major improvements in local recycling.


Get Serious about CO2

The local group participated in the national Get Serious About CO2 campaign.

The campaign aims to encourage people to write to their local councils calling for a 40% reduction in CO2 by 2020.
