Ecological Pressure Groups

  • James Radcliffe

Abstract

Turning from those groups attached to the established parliamentary parties and the electoral system, the next to consider are those pressure groups active on environmental issues but which have no party political link. The range of such organizations is very wide and so the choice of groups discussed below is a small section of the total number in existence. Some of the groups have emerged in response to the environmental crisis and are associated with the radical concept of ecology. Other groups discussed include ecological research groups and recent developments surrounding the anti-roads lobby and their association with life-style changes.
