Friends of the Earth – Germany


✏️ Description

Friends of the Earth Germany is a non-profit, non-partisan, and non-religious grassroots organization with more than 480,000 members and supporters. Friends of the Earth Germany’s origins lie in the nature conservation and anti-nuclear protest movements of the 1970s, with some local branches dating back to 1913. Officially founded in 1975 as a federation for existing regional groups, members work voluntarily in local and district groups to protect and conserve nature. Together they plant hedges, create ponds, take care of protected areas and fight for the preservation of valuable natural areas. In this way, the landscape becomes visibly more varied, diversified and colorful. Campaigning priorities are sustainable transport, fighting nuclear power, improving nature protection laws, and greening the German tax system. Friends of the Earth Germany’s focus is on envisioning a sustainable political approach, ensuring the right to an equitable existence for both our children and people living in the global south. They work effectively on the enormous challenges of environmental policy. Friends of the Earth Germany is committed to fostering the use of renewable energies, to ban the production of Genetically Modified Organisms, and reducing the amount of toxic chemicals in everyday life, always providing alternative solutions.
