Introducing WI Campaigns
Formed in 1915, the WI has a long history of campaigning on a wide range of issues.
WI campaigns are about changing things for the better and tackling the issues that matter to members.
Members are at the heart of the WI and they play a central role in bringing issues onto the WI's national agenda through our public affairs and campaigning. From equal pay to climate change, from gaps in the midwifery workforce to the plight of the honey bee, WI members have embraced a diverse set of challenges and built a reputation for the WI as a practical and ambitious organisation that doesn't shy away from tricky issues.
At the NFWI Resolution Shortlist Selection meeting member and federation delegates shortlisted five resolutions which are taken forward for further debate and voting by members.
Resolutions for 2023
Clean rivers for people and wildlife
Water quality in our rivers is shameful. Legally, designated bathing waters must be regularly monitored for pollution. The NFWI urges its members, the wider public, local authorities and Government to make, support and promote applications for official designated bathing sites on appropriate stretches of rivers in their area. This will be as instrumental to the clean up of rivers as it has been for water quality improvement at coastal beaches.
