Friends of the Earth Australia

Friends of the Earth (FoE) Australia is a federation of independent local groups working for a socially equitable and environmentally sustainable future.

Local and Global Environmental justice, positive solutions, anti nuclear, indigenous land and rights, climate justice, trade justice, global action!

FoE Australia was founded in 1974 at a meeting on French Island in Westernport Bay, Victoria, which was then the site for a proposed nuclear reactor. Over the last 32 years, FoE has evolved into a diverse and vibrant network of groups that are working at the local, regional, national and international level.

Environmental justice

FoE sees that pursuing environmental protection is inseparable from broader social concerns, and as a result uses an environmental justice perspective in its campaigning. A strong social perspective means FoE is well placed to develop alliances at the grassroots level with other organisations and communities.

Indigenous land and rights

FoE supports Indigenous sovereignty and works at both the local level with specific Indigenous communities as well as participating in debates and campaigns at the national level. FoE's Land and Rights policy can be found at: www.foe.org.au/docs/pub_ilrp.htm>

Positive solutions

FoE believes in working for a sustainable and empowering future. To this end, many FoE groups are working now to create the type of world we want: one that will be based on healthy communities and healthy ecosystems.
