We want a healthy planet that provides a good life for everyone on it now and for the future. The Earth will go on supporting us if we look after it. It’s clear what we must do to protect our world – and provide for a growing population.
National Friends of the Earth goals for 2030 are to
- stop natural habitats and species being destroyed
- reverse the loss of the planet’s natural life-support systems.
We need to do this in our neighbourhoods – there’s stuff we can all do.
But we also need action from politicians on our behalf at national level and across the world. Everyone depends on clean air and water, and healthy soils and forests. And millions of people rely directly on things like forests. Their rights must be protected.
Natural resources matter for the future too. We have to change the way we use them – so that generations to come can benefit as we do.
The Government can help protect our world’s vital natural diversity by
- Stopping climate change
- Tackling threats to forests
- Reducing waste
- Protecting people’s rights.
Manchester Friends of the Earth are involved in a range of biodiversity campaigns. See our Nature campaign page for more details.
