our first blog post
Welcome to the Friends of the Earth International blog.
There is so much going on in Friends of the Earth's 77 member groups that we wanted to find a faster and more immediate way to communicate their work to you. That's why we've launched this blog.
What better way to begin than reporting back on the United Nations Climate Conference in Poznań, Poland next week. Ok, so it may not sound too exciting but these talks will be covering crucial climate issues. Developed countries will be called on to make immediate steep emissions reductions, commit to the conservation of the world’s last remaining forests and to financially assist developing countries in adapting to climate change.
We hope that the blog over the course of the conference, and beyond, will give you a better understanding of how we, the world's largest grassroots-based environmental federation, are campaigning for an ecologically sustainable, just and peaceful world.
