Deutsche Umwelthilfe

The "Deutsche Umwelthilfe" (Environmental Action Germany) is a non-profit organisation that works for the protection of nature, the environment and consumer rights. It creates a dialogue between environmental associations, politicians and representatives of the economy with a strong focus on ecological and sustainable policies. Critical consumers and media representatives who support ecological and healthy lifestyles are important partners for the DUH. Together they fight for more careful use of natural resources ecological diversity and the conservation of the environment.

The DUH was founded in 1975 in Germany. Their work is financed by private donations and subsidies for environmental projects.

The Danish Ecological Council

»Det Økologiske Råd« (Danish Ecological Council) is a non-profit organisation founded in 1991. Its main objective is to promote sustainable development, where environmental concerns, social justice and human well-being are main focal points.

The Ecological Council is different from other Danish NGOs because it is an academic organisation that deals with environmental policy on a scientific basis, but at the same time tries to inform and engage in dialogue with both politicians and the general public.

The Ecological Council is not subsidised by the state. The work is financed by projects and member contributions and supported by voluntary work.
