Coronavirus guidance from national Friends of the Earth
During this time, Friends of the Earth’s priority is to ensure the safety of our network and our wider society. We must take appropriate steps to look after those most vulnerable to COVID-19 – in particular older people and those with underlying health conditions.
This does not mean stopping our work – climate change won’t wait – but it does mean going about it differently and shifting as much of our work as we can online.
Here are a couple digital tools to make the most of during this time:
If you’ve joined our webinars you’ll have experience using this conference call platform.
You can set up a free account to run your own meetings of 40 min or less.
If you need to organise something longer, get in touch and we’ll see how we can help.
- Action Network
Lots of you will already be using this digital campaign platform which lets you build a mailing list and create petitions.
Many other organisations and institutions are taking similar precautions, so if you have external meetings with other parties – e.g. councils or other organisations – make sure to check their own guidance and consider online alternatives.
