About Friends of the Earth Scotland

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 and to create a green economy, we campaign to end degradation of our environment and to create a society which cherishes and protects the natural world on which we depend, and we think globally and act locally, enabling people to take individual and collective action.

FoE Scotland employs 16 staff including three we host for other organisations.


We often need help at events (promotion, set up, staffing stalls, raffle ticket sales, etc.). This is a great way to meet like-minded people and practice engaging the public in environmental issues, and we provide all relevant training. Take a look at the Events Volunteer role description and write us an email if you’d like to be added to our volunteer mailing list.

We only infrequently have specific, office-based volunteering positions available. These are advertised on this page when they become available. Please sign up to our mailing list to receive updates, or check out our network of local groups for more ways to get involved near you.
