Lively, enthusiastic, critical, creative, and active are some of the key words which represent the members of Friends of the Earth Luxembourg. Started in 1968 by a group of young environmentally concerned people, today’s members and friends continue to fight for the protection of nature and environment, as well as for a better quality of life and democracy.
The organisation has more than 3,300 members, and most campaigning is carried out by volunteers. Providing consumer advice and awareness- raising on environmental problems and laws is a core activity of their work. Their ‘ecological centre’ has a library with over 5,000 books on environmental subjects and their foundation ‘Oeko-Fonds’ organises an environmental fair ‘Oeko-Foire’ every year which attracts more than 14,000 people
