Oxford Friends of the Earth (OxFoE) is a well-established voluntary organisation working in Oxford and across the county on environmental issues. We are a welcoming and well-organised group of people who voluntarily commit their time and energy. 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).
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.
Our campaigns currently focus on tackling climate change, reducing air and plastic pollution, protecting nature, and include transport and planning issues.
Our activities cover a wide spectrum – from public meetings and stalls to large collaborative initiatives and network building. There are lots of ways to get involved with our work. Joining us can help you grow your experience and expertise, provide opportunities to meet people with diverse backgrounds and to contribute with meaningful purpose – as much as you feel able to offer.
We’re always looking for help with planning and running events, lobbying decision-makers and influencers, fundraising and communication (e.g. social media, designing posters, writing articles and newsletters).
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month (except August) at 7.30 pm at the Quaker Meeting House, 43 St Giles, Oxford. You’re welcome to come along!
