About this Group

Newcastle Gateshead Friends of the Earth (NGFOE) is the local FOE group covering the Newcastle Gateshead area. If you live in that area and are interested in taking part in our group, come and join us to one of our monthly meeting.

There is a network of local Friends of the Earth Groups in the North east and you can find them using the Friends of the Earth Group finder.

Other nearby Groups are South Tyneside , Wearside and North Tyneside.

We are campaigning on the national "Fix the Food Chain" campaign. We had a few street stall, and a have a few more planned (see the calendar). A fun campaign, all dressed up as chicken, cows and pigs in the streets of Newcastle !! Watch the "Fix the Food Chain" movie on YouTube for an overview of the issues covered.

We are also currently investigating a number of potential new local campaign such as More Bike Locks, Mini Hydro scheme, leaves composting, organising a school organic diner, film screening, green community buildings etc... If you have any interest in any of these please contact us.
