Advocacy

JEEP advocates for policy change and law reform in favour of environment protection through submitting memoranda and participating in international solidarity campaigns for a better environment.

We have been involved in numerous local and international forums, consultative meetings with government agencies/departments and CSOs; contributed to national reports, participated in international celebrated days (e.g. World Environment Day) and international solidarity campaigns. During the Elections, JEEP holds a Green Manifesto Campaign. A “Green Checklist”  to raise concern over environmental issues.

The Nordic Folkecenter for Renewable Energy is a non-profit, independent, organization that provides research, development of technology, training and information for the manufacture, industrial innovation and implementation of renewable energy technologies and energy savings in Denmark and throughout the world. Folkecenter intends to achieve measurable increases in the utilization of renewable energy technologies and thereby significant reductions in environmental pollution associated with energy use in Denmark and elsewhere. - Visit Website
