For more than 30 years Friends of the Earth Hackney and Tower Hamlets has been campaigning for a greener, safer, healthier environment in London, and further afield.



We Are All Volunteers - Join Us!

We have a group of committed regulars who make up "Our Team" (scroll down to see who we are), but we're always excited to hear from people like you. If you want to do more to help the environment, and the people and animals who live on it, you’ve come to the right place. 

Want to volunteer with us? Here are some things to know:

  • No minimum time requirement: We have a number of campaigns and projects on the go at any given time, each requiring different levels of commitment. From spending 2 hours helping us out at an event, to leading your own campaign, you can give as much or as little time as you’re able.
  • No experience necessary:The more the merrier! Whether you’re well-versed in environmental issues, or are simply driven by the desire to do some good, makes no difference. If you care about our planet, we care about having your help.

There are many ways you can help

  • Collect petition signatures
  • Help us fundraise for, organise or promote an event
  • Volunteer at a monthly Restart Party
  • Start your own campaign!
  • Support our events by coming along

How to get involved

We have monthly meetings where anyone and everyone is free to stop by. This is a great opportunity to see what we’re working on, identify areas or of interest, and opportunities for getting involved. There are subgroup meetings for those interested in specific campaigns.

Our monthly meeting details are posted on the events calendar.

You could also drop us an email with your questions or show up to one of our events.

If you decide after a few meetings that you would like to join us in our quest for a greener world, we have an annual club fee of £12 per person. This helps towards our running costs and comes with no obligations.
