East of England

Find out what's happening across the East of England

For centuries, the East of England has produced much of the UK's food and been a haven from London.

Now the region is showing signs of serious environmental stress. Yet there are plans for a massive increase in housing and related infrastructure.

Unfortunately we have no staff member covering this region at the moment, but if you have any questions, please get in touch.

We also have a network of local groups across the East of England. Find your nearest local group.

BASECAMP

Friday, June 2, 2017 to Sunday, June 4, 2017

Basecamp is Friends of the Earth's annual flagship gathering of the environmental justice movement. Located in the stunning Peak District, it is a festival of ideas and action. The ideal place to find out more about making a change in your community. From spoon carving to legal seminars, bands that make you boogie to incredible speakers, we promise BASECAMP will take you on a journey full of inspiration. What have people previously said about Basecamp? "Can't wait for next year!" "It exceeded my expectations in every way possible - thank you." "I came away more inspired than I imagined I would be." That about says it all. Basecamp 2017 will be run from 2-4 June: come and be inspired. Bookings opening soon!

One and a half degrees: Can we change in time?

Saturday, June 17, 2017

This free event is for everyone - its aim is to motivate all of us to learn more about climate change - and how to take practical action to minimise its effects, locally, nationally and internationally. Stalls from different organisations, art and technology displays, films, talks by experts, live music and more, will illustrate the risks posed by climate change, and possible solutions, at the event. Given the significance of climate change in every child’s future, Swale FoE are really keen to involve schools in this event, and there are opportunities for pupils to show their understanding and creativity.
