London

Find out what's happening across London

London's a great city, but it has huge environmental problems. Dirty air, cold and damp homes and threats to green spaces are blighting the quality of many Londoners’ lives. 

But things could be different. As a world city, London can take leadership role in tackling climate change. It can be at the forefront of a transition to a high-tech, resource-efficient economy powered by clean energy.

We’re campaigning to make sure London’s mayor Sadiq Khan lives up to his promise to be the ‘Greenest mayor ever’, and improves London’s environment for all Londoners.

I’m Sophie, and I lead Friends of the Earth’s campaigning in London. A Londoner born and bred, I love walking and cycling around our city, enjoying all that it has to offer.

Do get in touch to talk about how Friends of the Earth can work with you.

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.
