(If you project is less than 1 year old feel free to ignore this question)During the European Year of Development 2015, FoE groups promoted a wide range of different topics and issues to a broader public on national and local level. In the context of the UN climate talks (COP 21) in Paris the main focus was on climate justice and energy transformation. The Friends of the Earth partners reached in 2015 a total number of 692,408 citizens through broad outreach activities. These engaged 6529 local group activists, 25,085 members of affected communities. 155,051 non-CSO members, 39,347 young people and 23,107 members of EU13 on local and national level. This success was thanks to the massive mobilisation through awareness raising activities, actions & discussions.
