Friends of the Earth Melbourne believes that social and environmental issues cannot be separated from each other. As a result, FoE is a social and environmental justice organisation. We seek to work toward a sustainable and equitable future, and to operate in a way that empowers individuals and communities. This means that FoE operates on a collective basis, and utilises the consensus decision-making model.

FoE campaigns from the local to global level: we are part of the FoE Australia network, which currently includes eight local groups around the country. FoE Australia is, in turn, a member of FoE International, which is now active in more than 70 countries.

Collectively, the FoE network is the largest environmental federation in the world. It has around 5,000 local branches, including those in Australia. Member groups at the national level are autonomous, leading to a great diversity within the network. FoE International is active on many of the key global environmental and social issues.
