Ecologic Institute is an independent, academic think tank for environmental research and policy analysis. Since our founding in 1995, Ecologic Institute has been dedicated to improving environmental policy, sustainable development and policy practice. Through findings and ideas Ecologic Institute helps to mainstream environmental issues into other policy areas. Strengthening the European and international dimensions in research, education and environmental policy discourses is a key priority.
