Organization and staff

Milieudefensie (Friends of the Earth Netherlands) has been working toward a fair and sustainable Netherlands since 1971. We believe that if we share the earth’s resources fairly, put an end to pollution and take from the earth only what it can regenerate itself, prosperity is achievable for one and all: for us, for all of humanity, for now and for future generations.

Milieudefensie actively campaigns in five areas: food, energy, transportation, the economy and forests. We work on these issues with as many other people as possible – locally, nationally and internationally – and coordinate all of this with Friends of the Earth International.
 
Milieudefensie is an association of 87,500 members and donors. We have a paid staff and our national headquarters is in Amsterdam.
