Jan 1, 1970 | News

(19 June 2014) – ECOLISE, the new European network to support community-led action on climate change and sustainability, initiated by AEIDL, recently marked another important milestone, with its official registration as an international association (AISBL) under Belgian law.

On May 9, twenty-five organisations, representing several thousand community-led initiatives, signed up as founding members, committing to work together to create the conditions for the deepening, further replication and cooperation of such approaches across Europe.

A study carried out by AEIDL in 2013 identified in excess of 2,000 community-based initiatives on climate change and sustainability in 13 EU Member States, a number which was growing rapidly.

The ECOLISE network brings together a range of partners from across Europe, including the Transition Network and many national Transition hubs, the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN-Europe), Permaculture UK, GAIA Education, ICLEI (local governments for sustainability), Lisbon University and others.
