Friends of the Earth Lithuania was established by national environmental clubs, groups and activists to coordinate activities and exchange information between over 500 members across Lithuania.
As the first post-Soviet environmental organisation in Lithuania, they played a significant role in democratising, raising public awareness on, and mobilising participation on environmental issues in the country. Today, Friends of the Earth Lithuania is one of the country's most active environmental NGOs, and works to influence public policy, increase participation and raise public awareness about environment protection and sustainable development.
Friends of the Earth Lithuania campaigns to protect the Baltic Sea and its catchments, for the conservation of protected territories and natural landscapes. They deliver environmental education and raise public awareness about environment and sustainable development, they campaign around issues of energy, environment, and transport, and they monitor the activities of the International Financial Institutions in Lithuania. They also support the development and strengthening of environmental organisations and citizen's groups in Lithuania.
The group publish a bi-weekly newsletter called ‘Green Lithuania’.
