How long have you been volunteering with BfoE?

I have been volunteering since June but I enjoy it so much, it feels like I’ve been here longer.

What do you do here?

During the Let’s Get Moving campaign I worked on alliance building with neighbourhood forums and doing admin work in the office. I also helped on stalls throughout the summer. Now the campaign is over I’m doing research and office work. I’m also on the campaign organiser programme with Friends of the Earth (EWNI) which means I’m going to be co leading a local campaign which I’m really excited about.

What do you like best here?

I like the people! It’s nice to work alongside like-minded people and where everyone’s opinions and ideas are heard.

What have you learnt from volunteering with BFoE?

With the support of other volunteers I have learnt so much. There are too many things to list as each day brings new tasks and challenges to overcome.

What do you like is the most important environmental issue and why?

I think people are the most important environmental issue. We all need to take a look at the consequences of our actions and re-educate ourselves to live in harmony with the natural world.

What’s your best green tip/advice?
