Launched in Ireland in 2004, our priority campaign is on climate change. As well as our own campaign for a law to ensure action to reduce climate pollution, Friends of the Earth plays a leading role in the Stop Climate Chaos coalition which brings together environmental, overseas aid and faith groups to campaign for Ireland to do its fair share to prevent runaway climate change.


The Commitment
These posts are for 20 hours a week for six months (the duration is negotiable and can also be extended in certain circumstances). The allocation of weekly hours will be agreed between each intern and their line manager. This internships are on a voluntary basis. However, there will be a very small allowance to cover transport and lunch.
