Set up in 1974, the EEB is Europe’s largest network of environmental NGOs, bringing together around 140 civil society organisations from more than 30 European countries (virtually all EU Member States plus some accession and neighbouring countries), including a growing number of European networks.
The EEB has four membership categories: full members, associate members, affiliate members and honorary members. The first three categories are for organisations; the fourth, honorary membership, is a status conferred on a small number of individuals on the basis of the moral support they have given or work they have undertaken towards protecting the environment.
Our honorary members are: Hubert David, Robin Grove-White, John Hontelez, Michael Scoullos, Margaret Sweeney, Geneviève Verbrugge, Edgar Kesteloot and Gerrit Vonkeman.
Member organisations, whether full, associate or affiliate members, may be national member organisations or European networks. Below you will find a list of our member organisations starting with our national members followed by our European network members.
