Birmingham Friends of the Earth are celebrating their 40th Anniversary this year. To help mark four decades of campaigns and action, I am working with local historian, Liz Palmer, on a Heritage Lottery Fund supported project. It will involve working with activists, past and present, to explore memories and archives.
Back in April I attended the 40th Anniversary Party. The fact that it was so well attended (see above!) really shows what an important role Birmingham Friends of the Earth, and The Warehouse, have played in people’s lives. So much has been achieved, so many friendships formed and so much creative and committed work has been put into making positive and sustainable environmental change.
If you want to get involved with delving into archives or recording oral histories, there is an informal meet-up next Tuesday, 8th August at 6pm at The Warehouse on Allison Street. Or, if you would like to be kept in the loop with news and events, you can subscribe to the project newsletter for occasional updates.
