About Us

About Oxford Friends of the Earth

One of around 200 local Friends of the Earth groups across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, we're a voluntary group of local residents working to promote a healthy and sustainable environment. We meet regularly to discuss campaigns on a range of environmental issues, to share concerns and celebrate progress.

What does the Oxford group do?

  • Keep ourselves informed with discussions at our meetings and talks from invited speakers on current environmental activities, and through our monthly bulletin
  • Raise awareness of key environmental issues at our stalls at public meetings and events that we organise, via our stalls at local festivals and events, and through social, print and broadcast media
  • Raise funds for campaigning through raffles and other events
  • Decide which issues to focus on and collaborate with our supporters and other groups/individuals to run campaigns and events. Our current focus is on air pollution, climate action and protecting bees/nature.

What can I do?

There's a whole range of ways you can get involved; from helping on stalls to organising high profile activities, contributing to social media, giving media interviews or writing letters to your MP and councillors. Don't worry if you feel like you don't know enough - joining us can be a learning experience and a chance to meet people with diverse backgrounds.

If you would like to get involved, please contact us by email (see contact details below). You can also find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (OxfordFOE1) for details of forthcoming events, latest campaign news and more.

When and Where?

Everyone is welcome to our monthly meetings, held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7.30 pm at the Friends' Meeting House, 43 St Giles, Oxford. This is the best way to find out more about our latest campaigns and to get involved in our activities. Email us if you would like to subscribe to our monthly bulletin.
