  • General

Friends of the Earth Australia is a member of Friends of the Earth International which is the world’s largest grassroots environmental network, uniting 77 national member groups and some 5,000 local activist groups on every continent. With over 2 million members and supporters around the world, we campaign on today’s most urgent environmental and social issues. We challenge the current model of economic and corporate neoliberal globalization, and promote solutions that will help to create environmentally sustainable and socially just societies.

Friends of the Earth Australia is a federation of autonomous local and affiliate groups who are working towards an environmentally sustainable and socially equitable future. FoE Australia functions both through the activities of its local and affiliate groups, and on the national level through national campaigns and projects, appointed spokespeople, national liaison officers and the national magazine, Chain Reaction. Friends of the Earth Australia currently has local groups in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Far North Queensland, South West WA, Perth and Adelaide. We also have 13 affiliate group members based around the country. Each local or affiliate group operates independently but also according to the Friends of the Earth Australia’s vision and values.

Our vision is of a world where everyone’s needs are met in a way which safeguards the future of the environment. We campaign for a world where environmental protection, social justice and economic welfare for all people, go hand in hand. Through our local, national and international networks, we work with the community to communicate, raise awareness, put forward alternatives and take action. Our philosophy and practice is grounded in our messaging ‘mobilise, resist, transform’.

Make Your Change acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we live, play, advocate, and activate.  We acknowledge their continuing connection to Country and community, and pay our respect to Elders past and present. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians.  We are committed to honouring their unique cultural, and spiritual relationship to the land, air, waters and seas—as well as their rich contributions to society. We acknowledge the sovereignty, land, and law of First Nations were never ceded—this always was and always will be the Land of First Nations people.
