Air Quality is going to be next major campaign. For further details go to 

Big discussion on flooding and especially about how Friends of the Earth have responded through the work of Guy Shrubsole. Treeresponsibility gave a presentation on their work with catchment management and issues over land ownership. see link and the Kirkstall Action group talked about their response to recent floodings.

The Friends of the Earth position is to support the Remain In campaign for the European referendum. See the link here for more details.

Rewilding is to be a separate but important piece of work nationally that Friends of the Earth is starting with Elaine Gilligan taking the lead. It will no doubt be the prompt for the replacement to Bees.
