Who are we?

The non-governmental-organization “Polis - International Network in Environmental Education” (Polis-INEE) has been created in May 1994 by an international group of activists and researchers in the field of Environmental Education, thanks to the backing of “ Charles Léopold Mayer Foundation for the Progress of Humankind ”, a Swiss-registered foundation (FPH). It is coordinated from Greece and comprises more than three hundred members from more than sixty countries. These include a few agencies (public and private) and persons who come from a great variety of disciplines and professions: teachers, facilitators, researchers, civil servants, agronomic engineers, urban planners, students, etc. Polis is a nonprofit organization under Greek law. Its action is aimed at promoting the work of people and organizations active in the field of Environmental Education by the exchange of their experiences; promoting international collaboration on mutual aid for our actions as educators; promoting research and action for Environmental Education.
