All Friends of the Earth Scotland members are warmly invited to our Annual General Meeting on Saturday 8 June 2024.

We are excited to be holding our AGM in Glasgow this year, with the opportunity to join online for anyone who can’t make it in person.

Friends of the Earth Scotland is a democratic, grassroots organisation, and the AGM is an opportunity for members to influence our direction as well as elect members of our board. 

This event is a chance to meet our board members, the staff, learn more about our campaigns and build connections with other members.

We’ll also be hosting a post-AGM event, discussing the fight against power stations in Peterhead. This will be in person only.

This year, we are looking for new board members. If you would like more information, please contact us at recruitment@foe.scot  

As a member of FoES, you can also choose to submit a motion to the board. This motion needs to be seconded by another member. To do so, please use the Motion Form and send it completed before Saturday 25 May to agm@foe.scot
