UNESCO's International Directory of Environmental Education Institutions on Internet

UNESCO's International Directory of Environmental Education Institutions on Internet

Keywords: Internet, Information management, Training, Research

The directory is one of UNESCO's efforts to develop an international information network to facilitate exchange of knowledge, information and materials on environmental education. It offers a large list of environmental education training and research institutions around the world; it gives information on names, addresses, geographical coverage, working-language, type of institution area of interest, target groups, services and publications of about 500 institutions worldwide. The directory is based on the edition prepared in the framework of the UNESCO-UNEP international environmental programme IEEP first published in 1971 and revised in 1981 and 1989. Since then environmental education has undergone many changes and new institutions have adopted training and research programmes on environmental issues. In order to reflect those changes UNESCO found it necessary to publish again a revised version of the Directory and comments and corrections are welcome. The Directory may be found at the following address: http://www.unesco.org/education/educprog/environment/index.html
