Oxford Friends of the Earth

...

Join us to help make a difference! 

Oxford Friends of the Earth works to protect and improve our environment local and nationally. We are part of the Friends of the Earth global network working in 75 countries.

Here in Oxford and across the county we work on

  • Climate action – we push for stronger policies and promote clean energy solutions and actions to make Oxfordshire a genuinely ‘zero-carbon county’
  • Nature and climate solutions – we want to see more space and protection for nature
  • Clean Rivers – we need action to tackle the sewage pollution in the Thames and ther rivers.
  • Air Pollution – we work for tighter controls on pollution across the county and we have our own pollution monitors
  • Transport – Oxfordshire needs an integrated transport system that means that people don’t need cars for most journeys.

June 2024 Update! 

We have the election coming!  We have a real opportunity to make this the nature and climate election.  We are working to support environmentally themed ‘hustings’ meetings with MP candidates in Oxfordshire constituencies – contact us at election@oxfoe.co.uk if you are organising an event or would like to.

We are working on a new national Friends of the Earth campaign – on a Human Right to a Healthy Environment. Come to our next meeting on Weds. June 12th to find out more. To celebrate Great Big Green Week, the meeting is also a social event. For the first part, we are excited to host Lewis Carr from Friends of the Earth’s national office, who will enlighten us about their inspiring new Human Right to a Healthy Environment campaign.

Following the discussion, we will have an informal hands-on workshop to make placards, banners, and masks for the Restore Nature Now March on Saturday 22nd June. And of course, no gathering is complete without cake

The meeting is on Wednesday 12th June, from 7:30 to 9:00 PM at the Friends Meeting House, 43 St Giles, Oxford. Although it is a more social meeting, the first half will be available online. Sign up  here to reserve a place or receive the Zoom link. We look forward to seeing you there!
