Friends of the Earth Spain

Friends of the Earth Spain has six active local groups around Spain, with a central office in Madrid.  It runs an information/education centre for the general public called ‘As Corcerizas’ in Galicia which provides environmental information and educational materials on sustainable construction. The centre also provides voluntary youth programmes.  

Friends of the Earth Spain puts pressure on national, regional and local governments and companies to protect the environment and natural resources.   

The organisation promotes local awareness of both global and local environmental problems and provides opportunities to take direct action.
