Update on One Future - local climate campaigning groups

View all news

One Future is a network of local climate campaign groups that Friends of the Earth supports across the country. Getting involved with your local One Future group is a great way to meet people from your local area who are concerned about the climate crisis, and who want to take action together. You can sign up to get involved here - you’ll then receive an email with instructions about getting in touch with your local group.

This winter, quite a few One Future groups have been running online “Town Hall” events to facilitate engagement between local people and their elected TDs on climate and environmental issues. One Future groups used these events to speak to local TDs about a range of issues, including community energy, water pollution and retrofitting homes.

Other One Future groups have been getting organised to oppose new fossil fuel infrastructure projects in their own local areas. One Future Fingal is building local resistance to a new gas burning plant that has been proposed for development at Kilshane Cross. If you live in Fingal and woulld like to get further involved in the local campaign you can get in touch with Fingal One Future by email at fingalonefuture@gmail.com.

With Rosi - our new Network Development Coordinator in post, we sent out a survey to all One Future members before Christmas. This survey is helping us to assess where groups are at in their campaigning and group building journeys - so that we can most effectively support them in 2022. We are also hosting an online feedback session and social event for One Future members at 6.30pm on Monday 31st January. If you are a One Future member we would love to see you there! You can register at this link. This event is an opportunity to meet people from other One Future groups, hear what these groups have been doing during 2021 and share feedback on the support and resources that One Future members would like during the next year.
