Global Legislators Organisation for a Balanced Environment in Europe

"GLOBE is active in the European region via two organisations: GLOBE Europe and GLOBE EU.

"GLOBE EU is a cross-party Intergroup of Members of the European Parliament with an interest in being closely involved in policy developments in the fields of environment, sustainability and climate change. GLOBE EU provides a platform for the timely discussion of upcoming policy proposals and for co-ordinating political action within the European Parliament. It seeks to facilitate MEPs contacts with Commission officials and stakeholders by organising high-level round table conferences, and by offering support in their political activities. Its current President is Anders Wijkman MEP.

"GLOBE Europe started as an offshoot of GLOBE EU in 1994. It is now an organisation in its own right, consisting of a network of 1,500 parliamentarians from the 27 EU member states and from Norway, Iceland, Turkey, FYROM, Moldova and Croatia who work together across party and country lines to enhance sustainable development and support the protection of the environment and biodiversity. GLOBE Europe has also got over 250 contacts in environmental NGOs, ministries, industry, business and scientific institutions. Its current President is Steen Gade, Chairman of the Danish Parliament Committee on the Environment." [1]
