Friends of the Earth is the world’s largest grassroots environmental campaigning organisation. It brings together more than two million people across 75 countries dedicated to the protection of the natural world and the wellbeing of everyone in it. It leads campaigns, supports grassroots groups, provides resources and promotes solutions aimed at creating a cleaner, healthier, fairer world for everyone – for today and generations to come. Political will is the main obstacle to reversing climate change so Friends of the Earth combines evidence-based analysis of environmental problems with awareness raising campaigns to build mass public pressure on governments to commit to genuine climate action. Friends of the Earth includes hundreds of Climate Action groups across the UK who are working towards local solutions to the global climate crisis.
Survival International has spent 50 years fighting for tribes, for nature and for all humanity. A vital global movement, Survival International works in partnership with Indigenous peoples to ensure their human and land rights are respected and upheld. This means stopping loggers, miners and oil companies from destroying tribal lands, lives and livelihoods across the globe. It means lobbying governments to recognize indigenous land rights and calling out Colonial Conservation and forced development. It means documenting and exposing racism, ethnic cleansing and genocidal violence committed against tribal people and taking direct action to stop these human rights violations and atrocities.
Of the 150 million Indigenous peoples around the world, most are self-sufficient. They depend on their land for their livelihood, and for their physical and spiritual health and wellbeing - and we depend on their guardianship too. It is no coincidence that 80% of the world's biodiversity is found on land belonging to Indigenous peoples - they are the world's best conservationists. Survival International gives tribal peoples a platform to speak to the world. This is not only crucial so we can understand and support Indigenous peoples struggles but so we can all learn how to live in harmony with nature and ensure a future for all humanity.
ClientEarth is the people-powered law charity set up to protect life on earth. Working with partnerships across the globe they act on behalf of the planet to hold governments, corporations and the powerful to account using the most important tool citizens have - the law. ClientEarth have introduced public interest law in 25 countries around the globe and recent victories include stopping 40 coal power plants being built in the European Union, forcing BP to withdraw its greenwashing advertising campaign, stopping the Polish government logging the Bialowieza Forest and forcing 28 EU countries to tackle dirty air after successful court victory against the UK Government. It's not all about litigation. ClientEarth also use strategic communications, advice and advocacy to find positive and practical solutions to address climate change, protect biodiversity, stop pollution and protect human and land rights. They work with legislators to strengthen planned laws and challenge existing ones. They work with businesses to create robust legal frameworks and train experts to uphold them and they fight to strengthen citizens laws and ensure everyone can access them. They do all this because they know that one well-placed, hard-won legal victory can change the system. Enough of them can change the future.
