Our Collectives

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.

Economic Justice

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.

Other work

Other Climate Campaign work...

We believe that as a state-based environmental organisation, our best contribution to slowing climate change is to stop the further development of fossil fuel projects in Australia and help drive the transition to 100% renewables as fast as is humanly possible.
