Your Christmas Tree grows in Africa! Together for more climate justice!

As the holiday season approaches, NFI's Christmas fundraising campaign takes on a special significance. It is a time of giving when we want to support those who are most affected by climate change. This year, the focus of NFI's campaign resonates deeply with the principles of climate justice. In a symbolic sense, when you support initiatives like the Naturefriends Climate Fund you're nurturing a different kind of Christmas tree - one that grows in the hearts and in the lands of villages.

Climate Justice for the future!

The XXV Congress of Naturefriends International demands from the wealthy states a stronger commitment to climate protection and climate justice! "Climate Justice for the Future" was the motto of the XXV Congress of Naturefriends International, which took place on 7 October in the Naturefriends Hotel in Spital am Pyhrn (Austria). 60 participants from 15 countries discussed the global effects of the climate crisis and adopted a catalogue of demands to the industrialised and emerging countries as well as concrete measures of Naturefriends for more climate justice.

Kick-off for tree sponsorships in Senegal and The Gambia. Naturefriends for climate justice!

After intensive preparation, the time has finally come: the official launch of the Naturefriends tree sponsorships in Senegal and The Gambia is just around the corner! Around 3,500 fruit trees are to be planted in the next few weeks with people living in six villages along the two countries' border region, which was awarded Naturefriends Landscape of the Year in 2018. They will then be given to families to care for.

Climate delicacies at Naturefriends Houses: Saving the climate with pleasure!

Our diet has a significant impact on our ecological footprint. The food sector is responsible for more than a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, with a large share attributed to animal products. With their climate delicacies, selected Naturefriends Houses and eco-labelled restaurants all over Austria are setting a good example by offering their guests vegetarian or vegan dishes with regional ingredients – according to the motto "Good for us, good for the planet!“.

Climate justice as the basis for a good life for all people!

The industrialised and emerging countries have the largest contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions – but it is the people in the Global South, many of whom already suffer from extreme poverty, who are most affected by the consequences of climate change. Naturefriends International, therefore, calls for more climate justice at the World Climate Conference, which starts this weekend in Sharm El Sheikh: immediate, ambitious and binding climate protection measures as well as efficient support for the countries and people most affected by climate change.

Energy transition for an independent, ecological, and social Europe!

At its Annual Conference in Lozio (Italy), Naturefriends International (NFI) calls on the European Union and its member states to immediately implement necessary measures for an energy self-sufficient, ecological, and social Europe. A rapid switch to renewable energies that is in line with nature conservation is the basis for achieving global climate goals and for ending dependence on the monopoly suppliers of fossil fuels.
