It was in Vienna, on the 16th September 1895, that the Friends of Nature movement was officially founded with the first elected Chairman and the creation of the articles of association.
Today we celebrate the 123rd Anniversary along with other member groups and countries around the globe. A day to be proud!! For over a century Friends of Nature has been advocating the careful use of resources, respect for nature and a fair and just society for all. Worthy goals which are as relevant today as they were in the last century.
So on this special day why not make a resolution to tell others of our work...? If everyone could just recruit one new member we could double our membership and spread the word more widely.
A good source of information for the global nature of projects is our umbrella organisation Naturefriends International (NFI) which showcases the ongoing ethos of working co-operatively, together, across boundaries, towards a better world for everyone:
Happy Friends of Nature Day!!
*Today our house in Kirk Yetholm sends the second installment of 1000 euros to the work of NFI, 1000 euros each year for 5 years. Donations big or small will be put to good use. Who else will join us...?
