The International Convention of Environmental Laureates, organized by the European Environment Foundation, provides a platform for an interdisciplinary and open-ended exchange on a personal level between visionaries who shape environmental policy: between laureates of renowned international environmental prizes.
The laureates include active environmentalists, publicists and civil rights activists, scientists, sponsors and business people. Above all, they are doers, with one thing in common: They have a vision and goals, and they have found ways of implementing them. Every one of them has made a significant contribution in their field towards environmental protection.
The Freiburg International Convention is the ideal opportunity for building a global network and for mutual learning between the leading players and activists of the worldwide environment movement. With the exchanges of experiences amongst each other the laureates become multipliers and creators of ideas and initiatives that can be successfully implemented in other areas around the world.
By this means, the ambition of the European Environment Foundation comes true: to promote dialogue among all disciplines of environmental policy. The key principle behind this orientation is the certainty that for any environmental policy to be effective, it must be applied transnationally.
