Our Mission

Friends of the Earth Scotland exists to campaign, with partners here and across the globe, for a just transition to a sustainable society.

We work in Scotland for socially just solutions to environmental problems. We campaign to end environmental degradation and to create a green economy and a society which cherishes and protects the natural world. We think globally and act locally, enabling people to take individual and collective action.
