Natasha picking up our Earthmover awardWell done all – you may have heard by now – Camden Friends of the Earth won the Earthmover award for Outreach event or activity of the year, awarded at a glittering awards ceremony at Friends of the Earth Annual Local Groups conference 2011.

The Earthmover Awards celebrate successes of the last year and recognise and reward the inspirational and innovative campaigning of local groups. The Judged Awards which includes the Outreach award are assessed by a panel of judges in advance of Conference. Camden FoE was given the award for a combination of our successful Energy Bill public meeting in March and our very popular pop-up freegan vegan banquet last October.

There are over 200 local Friends of the Earth groups across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, running some great campaigns and putting on inspiring events. As you can imagine we were really pleased to win the Earthmover award, especially as there were so many other deserving winners!
