Decide what you're going to work on and find people to work with. For advice on this – and your first 3 meetings – check out 'how to start a local group'.
Once you've had a few successful meetings and your group is up and running, get in touch by emailing [email protected].
We'll answer any of your questions and figure out what support you might need going forward.
Get licensed. To formalise the relationship, we will need you to:
- Sign a Trademark licence agreement.
- Agree to the terms set out in the Local group charter.
- Familiarise yourself with the guidance in our key documents and key policies.
What happens next?
Once we've received all your completed documentation, we'll email to confirm that you're officially a Friends of the Earth group.
You'll then be all set to start campaigning in the name of Friends of the Earth.
As a Friends of the Earth local group, you will be able to apply for grants of up to £500 to help your campaigning.
