Oxford Friends of the Earth

...

Oxford Friends of the Earth is a thriving and effective local group that has been active for over 40 years.  Our purpose is to work together to promote a healthy and sustainable environment. We aim to accomplish this by encouraging people across Oxfordshire to be active in driving meaningful, positive change that makes a lasting difference on our environment. We are one of 150 local groups in England and Wales that are part of the national Friends of the Earth organisation (which is one of 75 national groups across the world).

Friends of the Earth’s vision is that “By 2030, the next generation will enjoy an environment that’s getting better: a safer climate, flourishing nature, and healthy air, water and food.”
