Our international network

Big environmental problems like climate change don’t just stop being a problem at the border. That is why Milieudefensie works within an international framework as well as at the grassroots level, often working directly with citizens. We do this mainly in cooperation with the European and international Friends of the Earth networks.

Friends of the Earth International

Milieudefensie is a member of the worldwide environmental network, Friends of the Earth International (FoEI). It is one of the largest environmental networks in the world and it always puts people first. FoEI has member groups in 75 countries as well as approximately 5,000 local chapters and two million members and supporters. Together, we campaign to tackle the most important environmental issues of the day – such as climate change.
Milieudefensie sometimes works closely with Friends of the Earth member organizations abroad, such as ERA/FoE-Nigeria and WALHI/FoE-Indonesia.

Friends of the Earth Europe

Friends of the Earth Europe (FoEE) works on behalf of the 31 European members of Friends of the Earth International. The office is in Brussels where the European Union often makes important decisions on the environment. FoEE carefully monitors these decisions and tries to oppose decisions that are bad for the environment. FoEE also provides advice, contributes to solutions and actively supports good plans.
