Friends of the Earth has many collective run campaigns. We don't have a CEO to tell us where to campaign, but instead are guided by the energy in the community.
Please contact us if you are interested in finding out how you can get involved in any of the work detailed below or would like to start a collective with FoE.
Act On Climate
Act on Climate is a team of citizens who are concerned about climate change and want to take action on it at a grassroots level. We aim to advance policies that prevent climate change from getting worse and also helping build resilient communities who can adapt to the climate impacts that are already locked in.
Nuclear Free (ACE)
The Nuclear Free (ACE) collective are working in solidarity with Traditional Owners and alongside affected communities on uranium mining, nuclear reactors, radiation and health issues.
The Economic Justice Collective calls on the Australian Government to stop including Investor State Dispute Settlement clauses into trade deals. These deals are contributing to a race to the bottom for environmental protections and further the neo-liberal agenda - which is the cause of so much of our environmental and social woes.
FoE monitors biodiversity and companies involved in Victorian plantation forests, especially in the Strzelecki Ranges. FoE's Melbourne Forest Collective meets fortnightly and is focused on protecting Victoria's high conservation value native forests from logging. The collective meets every second Thursday and welcomes new members.
Quit Coal's current campaign is Energy Justice Victoria. The collective uses a range of tactics to campaign against new and existing coal and gas projects in Victoria, pushing for a socially just transition to clean, fair and affordable energy for all.
The collective meets every Wednesday evening and welcomes new members - contact firstname.lastname@example.org
River Red Gums along the Murray river were protected in 2010 with the formation of the Barmah National Park.
