Following a thorough evaluation process and discussion on the status of Amici della Terra’s membership in the Friends of the Earth International federation, the FoEI Biennial General Meeting (BGM),  gathered in Kandy, Sri Lanka, in October 2014, agreed to discontinue the membership of Amici della Terra.

Friends of the Earth International regrets that after thirty six years of membership, the vision of environmental justice shared by the federation and the mission and vision of Amici della Terra have come to diverge to such an extent that Amici della Terra’s membership is no longer tenable. This decision took immediate effect and means that as of October 2014, Friends of the Earth International does not have a member group in Italy.
