Volunteer Opportunities: Yes
The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) is a UK-based non-profit organization working internationally to protect the environment and defend human rights. EJF was founded in 2000 by Steve Trent and Juliette Williams who remain the charity’s Directors, and who today work with an international team based in the UK, Spain, Germany, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
EJF’s work aims to be direct and effective, from investigations, field projects and community partnerships to policy briefings and reports, campaign films and international advocacy that reach the highest levels of policy making in government, business and amongst the public.
EJF has worked in some of the world's toughest, most remote and difficult countries, securing change for vulnerable communities, wildlife and wild places. We have initiated campaigns that have led to governments addressing their use of forced child labor and human trafficking, to national and global bans on deadly pesticides, to the arrests of illegal 'pirate' fishing trawlers in West Africa and secured protection for unique coastal forests in Brazil. EJF's work is targeted, direct and effective in persuading action to protect our shared planet.
To protect people and planet
A world where natural habitats and environments can sustain, and be sustained by, the communities that depend upon them for their basic needs and livelihoods.
