Think Globally, Act Locally
Legambiente (League for the Environment) is the most widespread environmental organization in Italy, with 20 Regional branches and more than 115,000 members. It is acknowledged as “association of environmental interest” by the Ministry of the Environment; it represents the UNEP National Committee for Italy, it is one of the leading member of EEB (“European Environmental Bureau”) the Federation of European environmental organization, and of IUCN - the World Conservation Union. The headquarter is in Rome, with a staff made up of fifty professionals and experts on different fields of activity.
The processes of globalization which we have been confronted with in the past years have led to the inevitable consequence that an association as is Legambiente, traditionally involved in campaigns, in fighting and taking action with regard to issues on Italian territory, had to draw attention to and towards a more global and international dimension.
