Friends of the Earth campaign for environmental justice and sustainability. They believe in sustainable development – meeting the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. They also believe in fair shares – too often the poorest communities in the world are denied access to the natural resources essential to life, such as fresh water, while rich countries consume and pollute recklessly.

Our mission is to shift the balance of Irish policy and practice in favour of environmental justice and sustainability at home and internationally. We are currently working on an anti-fracking campaign and climate campaign and are calling on TDs and Ministers for their support. To take action and find out more click here.
