Campaign Express

An easy way to take effective action on all Friends of the Earth issues including Climate Change, Renewable Energy, GM food and Recycling.

 

Free to Join

The more people who take action, the more effective we'll be.

By signing up to Campaign Express you will receive three packs a year on a current live issue.  Each pack contains easy actions that are carefully planned to put pressure on the right people at the right time.  Simply send of a postcard, put up a poster or avoid a product.  It all adds up to make a massive difference.

Some actions may involve paying for a stamp or phone call.

React Fast

Rapid response actions are mailed three times a year so that when things really move you can act in time by sending a letter or making a phone call.

Make climate change an election issue:

April 2005

Just before the election we asked you to contact your parliamentary party candidates and ask them to support the Climate Change Bill.

229 MPs have now signed Early Day Motion 176 asking for a renewable heat obligation. This makes it one of the most supported motions in Parliament.

Renewable heat was not even on the Government agenda last year and now it's forming a key part of its climate change review programme.  Thanks to everyone who took the action. (If your preferred candidate didn't get elected, or if they didn't answer your email, you can have another go at contacting them. Visit the Big Ask, Friends of the Earth's new climate campaign, for more actions and information on what you can do.)

 

Rapid Response - Urgent threat of GM contamination

January 2005

Results of this action

In January we asked you to respond to an urgent threat of GM contamination from experimental crops in the US . The Food Standards Agency replied to the letters saying it is discussing with the EU Commission how to monitor for such contamination. We will carry on putting pressure on the Government to object to contamination and defend our right to choose GM-free food. Thanks to everyone who helped highlight the issue.
