FoE Australia functions both through the activities of its local groups, and on the national level through appointed spokespeople, campaigns and projects, the national magazine – Chain Reaction, and the work of the national liaison officers.
Friends of the Earth Australia is a federation of local activists campaigning across the nation through local active member groups. Many of the national campaigns are hosted by our local groups. Friends of the Earth Australia currently has groups in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Kuranda, South West WA and Adelaide. Each group operates independently but also according to the Friends of the Earth Australia vision and values.
