Join us for a webinar to launch our brand new Act Local campaign!  

Act Local is a new Friends of the Earth campaign that gives you and your community the tools to make change. We want to help local activists be visible and vocal champions of bold climate action by decision makers. Join this webinar to learn more about this campaign and how you - or your group - can get involved!

“Think Global, Act Local” is a slogan popularised by the founder of Friends of the Earth over 50 years ago. It applies today more than ever. Many of the things we need to do require changes at the local level, in your community, townland, town or suburb. We know that these changes are essential and will make for a safer, cleaner and healthier future. But some of them will mean short-term inconvenience or disruption. So we need to stand up and speak out for the benefits of climate action. Everyone has a part to play. No one is too big or small, too old or young to make a difference. 

We’ll provide you with the knowledge, resources, and support to take action and be a local hero for our planet and those who live on it. 

During the webinar we’ll talk about two critical strands to the Act Local campaign; “Space for Nature” and “Walkable, Liveable Communities”.

Space for Nature will let you reconnect with the natural world as we champion the creation and preservation of green spaces in your locality. Whether it's transforming vacant space into vibrant urban gardens or protecting local parks from development, we're giving you the tools to make your community a sanctuary for biodiversity.

Walkable, Liveable Communities invites you to imagine a neighbourhood where walking, cycling, and public transport are not just alternatives but preferred modes of getting around. The Act Local campaign will empower you to advocate for cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable communities. Together, we'll work to redesign our streets and infrastructure to prioritise people over cars.

By joining Act Local, you can become the driving force behind tangible change. So register for the launch webinar today and put the 17th October in your diary - it’s not to be missed!
