Welcome to the Fermanagh Fracking Awareness Network (FFAN).
FFAN is a rapidly expanding network of people who aim to raise awareness of the risks of unconventional Shale Gas Extraction, in regards to how it may affect our lives and those of our neighbours, friends and children, today, and for generations to come.
We serve the community by providing scientific, evidence based information.
FFAN is a cross community network of individual Fermanagh residents. It is not affiliated to any political party or other organisation but works with a broad range of groups and individuals who are concerned about the risks of hydraulic fracturing, both domestic and international.
County Fermanagh as an inclusive, progressive and vibrant county where its people and resources are respected, regenerated and sustainably managed and developed and where communities are healthy and prosperous, a great place to bring up families in a clean and unspoilt environment. We want this vision to be sustainable for the generations that follow.
