General information and objectives

The EEAC network is a unique collaboration between the councils set up by European governments to provide independent and scientifically based advice on the environment and sustainable development. The network is a powerful tool for sharing information and experience across Europe. The fundamental principle underlying the EEAC network is the common understanding that present trends in production, consumption, trade, and economic development as a whole are rooted in unsustainable uses of natural resources.  The global challenge confronting humankind is to move to a new and more sustainable concept of development. This new concept of development will acknowledge economic needs and social aspirations, but also will respect the constraints imposed by the requirement to protect the critical and unique values of the natural environment. Our Objectives • to enrich the advice the individual councils give to their national and regional governments; • to provide an operational framework for joint activities; • to profit from the experiences and work of councils in other countries; • to better anticipate forthcoming strategic issues at European level, and, where appropriate, to exert an influence on policy developments at EU level by acting cooperatively.
