Portsmouth Friends of the Earth (PFOE) works for a better environment, both here in Portsmouth and around the world. We are one of the longest established local groups in the country and we campaign on local and global environmental issues.
Meet like-minded people, find out what’s going on in your local area, and make a difference by campaigning on local and global environmental issues. We have a range of opportunities for volunteering and learning new skills eg newsletter, social media, website, events organising, poster design, prop making. Our local group is supported by national Friends of the Earth so active supporters benefit from training, information and opportunities to attend regional and national gatherings.
We are currently campaigning in three areas:
Walking –helping to reduce carbon emissions and air pollution from cars and improve health and wellbeing by making the city more walking friendly. We organise urban hikes across the city and have written a report on walking in Portsmouth to persuade the Council to adopt a City Walking Strategy. Download by clicking below:
Clean air – supporting FOE’s new national campaign on air pollution by placing air quality monitors around our city and collecting signatures for a national ‘ditch diesel’ petition.
Bees – supporting FOE’s national campaign to save Britain’s declining bee population by encouraging local people to plant bee-friendly flowers around the city and support the ban on pesticides harmful to bees.

Come along to our meetings: Campaign planning meetings take place on the third Monday of each month, 7 pm, at the Community Space, Tesco Extra, Fratton Park (upstairs behind the tills, follow the sign for ‘Community Space’).
