Tottenham & Wood Green Friends of the Earth
We campaign on local, national and global issues, raising awareness, involving people in action. We press MPs, councillors and other decision makers to implement solutions to environmental problems that make life better for people. Locally we helped get the Climate Change Act into law, we lobbied MEPs about the Biofuels directive, we lobbied MPs about the renewables strategy and the Marine Bill, we press the council to set tougher CO2 reduction targets, and we campaign against environmentally unsustainable planning developments.

Muswell Hill & Hornsey Friends of the Earth  In our recent campaign, 388 local people wrote to Barclays Bank urging them to drop their plans to frack for shale gas in North Yorkshire. We will continue to put pressure on Barclays to stop investing in dirty fossil fuels. We will also urge Haringey Council to extend the fossil fuel divestment which they undertook in response to our campaign. Join us, and add your power to ours!
