IFLA Europe becomes full member of the European Environmental Bureau EEB!
IFLA Europe became full member of European Environmental Bureau, EEB - Europe’s largest network of environmental citizens’ organisations. EEB brings together over 160 civil society organisations from more than 35 European countries. It stands for sustainable development, environmental justice & participatory democracy.
EEB tackles Europe’s most pressing environmental problems by agenda setting, monitoring, advising on and influencing the way the EU deals with these issues. These include issues such as climate change, biodiversity, circular economy, air, water, soil, chemical pollution, as well as policies on industry, energy, agriculture, product design and waste prevention among others. EEB is also also active on overarching issues as sustainable development, good governance, participatory democracy and the rule of law in Europe and beyond.
While the primary focus of the EEB’s work is on the EU and its decision-making processes, it works also on wider regional and global processes, at the level of the UN and the OECD, in particular on the Global Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Further, with the enlargement of Europe, the EEB has increased its cooperation with Eastern European environmental organisations, helping them use European regulations to strengthen their national environmental policies.
