Milieudefensie was founded in 1971 by a group of Dutch scientists concerned about environmental pollution. In 1972 Milieudefensie developed into a grassroots organisation and was registred as an association (vereniging). Milieudefensie became the Dutch member organisation of Friends of the Earth International that was founded as a network in 1972. Milieudefensie aims to contribute to solving and preventing environmental problems, and pursues a sustainable society at the global, national, regional and local level, in the interest of the environment and the landscape for current and future generations. We identify environmental problems; promote solutions through advocacy campaigns involving the public; aspire a fairer division of natural livelihood resources; aim at structural policy changes within governments and the corporate sector.
