About Us

The UK Tar Sands Network campaigns in partnership with Indigenous communities affected by the Tar Sands oil developments in Canada. We target governments, UK companies, banks and investors operating in the Alberta Tar Sands.

We work with climate activists, environmental NGOs, policymakers, student campaigning groups, and anyone else who is concerned about the impacts of Tar Sands. We are also working with other EU groups, to keep Europe out of the world’s most destructive project. We have recently joined the London Mining Network, an alliance of human rights, environment and development groups, holding the mining industry to account.

We receive funding from a variety of sources, including Artists’ Project Earth, Network for Social Change, Lush, Tides Foundation, Fondation Pour une Terre Humaine and private donations. Our average grant-size is £4200.
