About Us

About Oxford Friends of the Earth

One of around 200 local Friends of the Earth groups across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, we are a group of local residents working to promote a healthy and sustainable environment. We meet regularly to discuss campaigns on a range of environmental issues, to share concerns and celebrate progress.

What does the Oxford group do?

  • Keep ourselves informed with discussions at our meetings and talks from invited speakers on current environmental activities, and through our monthly bulletin
  • Raise awareness of key environmental issues at our stalls at local festivals and events, and at public meetings that we organise
  • Raise funds for campaigning through raffles, quizzes, gigs and other events
  • Decide which issues to campaign on and involve our members in running these campaigns - recent campaigns cover bees, fracking, flooding, community energy and climate change.

What can I do?

There's a whole range of ways you can get involved; from helping on stalls or writing letters to your MP and councillors, to organising high profile activities or giving media interviews. Don't worry if you feel like you don't know enough - joining us can be a learning experience and a chance to meet like-minded people.

If you would like to get involved, please contact us by email (see contact details below). You can also find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (OxfordFOE1) for details of forthcoming events, latest campaign news and more.

When and Where?

Everyone is welcome to our monthly meetings, held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7.30 pm at the Friends' Meeting House, 43 St Giles, Oxford. This is the best way to find out more about our latest campaigns and to get involved in our activities. Email us if you would like to subscribe to our monthly bulletin.

Global Crisis - Local Action public meeting

Jonathon Porritt and Craig Bennett gave a lively and informative presentation at the Methodist Church in New Inn Hall Street, Oxford, on 20th October on ‘Think Global, Act Local’. Looking first at the positive, Jonathon covered community energy, PV Panels, electric cars and – the big story – energy storage (where battery technology has improved enormously of late).
