A fresh start to 2018

a matrix comparing campaign topics with types of activity and goals

Wandsworth Friends of the Earth focus for 2018

At our first meeting in 2018,Wandsworth Friends of the Earth decided on a fresh start. Using an uncompleted version of the matrix above, we looked at the current eight campaigning topics promoted on the National Friends of the Earth website and compared these with types of activity that we might embark on as well as the goals of those activities. In discussion we decided to focus on three areas: “help nature”, “eat well” and “use less stuff”. We retain an interest in the “dirty energy” topic. We considered these focus areas to be the most appropriate for our location and capacities as well as one’s that other campaigning groups are giving less attention to. You can read more about our thought process in our January meeting note.
