Our Theory of Change.
Friends of the Earth has a unique view on social change; we believe it takes both proactive and reactive campaigning to deliver real outcomes.
There has tended to be a split between organisations that are working at a reactive level (ie campaigning to stop inappropriate developments and resource extraction) and those that are working at a more proactive level (ie. on community development and sustainable employment initiatives).
FoEB believes that the poor social and environmental outcomes that we see are manifestations of underlying social dysfunctions, it therefore makes sense to integrate both proactive and reactive work - to focus on both 'constructive' and 'oppositional' politics. At a basic level, while we are saying 'NO' to something, we also need to be saying 'YES' to something else.
Vision and Principles.
Friends of the Earth-Brisbane is a community based social change cooperative working on local, regional, national and international issues. We are working towards the creation of an ecologically sustainable and socially just society through community action.
