Friends of the Earth Campaign Organisers Programme

Becoming a Campaign Organiser is a chance to hone your activism skills and to contribute to real world change.

Becoming a Campaign Organiser takes a commitment of about three hours a week over the two years of the programme. In year one we’ll help you set up a Friends of the Earth group or lead a campaign with an existing one. In year two we’ll support you to help link together the groups in your area and support them to campaign together.

You’ll get:

  • An intensive training weekend in winter 2013/4
  • Ongoing 1:1 telephone support
  • Regular skillshares with other participants
  • £100 to run your first campaign
  • A £50 bursary for travel and accommodation
  • Friends of the Earth Certificate in Campaign Organising (on completion of the course)

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
