EJF (Environmental Justice Foundation)

EJF was established in 2000, and became a UK-registered charity in 2001. The founding directors Steve Trent and Juliette Williams, together have over 30 years experience investigating, exposing and resolving environmental abuses and have together worked in over 40 countries around the globe. EJF was established to ensure that these skills and know-how can be passed on to tomorrows environmental and human rights defenders. Since 2000, EJF has trained defenders in the Global South, and campaigned to raise awareness of their issues here in the West. Over the past 7 years we have actively partnered grassroots environmental and human rights defenders and undertaken investigations in 15 countries, from Guatemala to Cambodia, Uzbekistan to Guinea. We have produced 17 campaign reports and 6 films, including 'White Gold', the award-winning film on Uzbekistan's cotton industry, as well as a series of training manuals for grassroots activists.
