Description

 

Dear Friend,

Edinburgh, home to:

  • The Scottish Parliament
  • Half a million people; a Council that makes big decisions
  • RBS, funding polluting fossil fuel projects like tar sands across the world
  • Cairn Energy, planning to drill for oil in the Arctic; risking catastrophe (again).
  • You

 

Want to change the world? This isn’t a bad place to start…

Friends of the Earth Edinburgh are a group of people who campaign for a fairer, greener Edinburgh. We think we could achieve amazing things, and we’d love meet new people who want to come on board. Want to get involved? Join us.

AGM & NEW STRATEGY DAY – 30th July,

Full Session: 1 - 4pm
Planning and Priority Setting Session: 2:30-4pm

Thorn House, Rose Street, Edinburgh

Speakers will include:

1:30 pm STAN BLACKLEY – Chief Executive, Friends of the Earth Scotland.
2:30 pm ALI ABBAS – Campaigner, Friends of the Earth Manchester
Ali will speak about how the FoE Manchester group:

  • Persuaded Manchester City Council to sign up to a 41% cut in Co2 by 2020
  • Set up a monthly morning cycle ride into the city centre
  • Run a monthly clothing swap shop
  • Developed Real Food Guide & Ethical Shopping Guides
  • Instigated trial of Meat Free Mondays in local primary school
  • Organised a cycle fashion show, Bike Fabulous

They did all that with just a handful members – think what we can do!
