Dear nandhakumar

Thank you for your interest in the EEA and for telling us about your association. We appreciate and support the efforts you are making towards protecting the environment.

The EEA is an official European body, aiming at supporting the development and implementation of sound environmental policies in the EU and other EEA member countries by delivering timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policy-makers and the public. The EEA produces environmental reports and indicators, which assist the European Community in its attempt to improve the environment and move towards sustainability in Europe.

As you may see from this description, the EEA produces reports on the state of the environment in Europe. Hence, the EEA does not usually collaborate with organisations outside this geographical area, nor does the EEA provide funding for educational purposes.

However, your organisation is very welcome to use the resources that are available for free on our website.

You do not mention what age group you work with, but if your educational work is directed at children or young people, you may be interested in EEA’s educational materials for kids. For instance, the Honoloko game is environmental game which is available in 25 languages. The direct link to Honoloko is: http://www.honoloko.com/

Another web based EEA interactive activity for kids are the ECO Agents. For your information, the purpose of the Eco Agents website is to raise children's awareness about current environmental issues and topics. To appeal to this young audience (9 to 14-year-olds) the core content is presented in a comic strip format. In addition, amusing flash games are incorporated into the storylines allowing children to accumulate points and add to their general score. It offers quite a lot of information and activities (environmental facts, visiting the scientists, eco-missions, and quizzes). To play the game, please see:

I would also like to mention our Multimedia centre, which offers a collection of videos and animations that can be used for educational purposes:

Furthermore, I recommend considering the youth site of the Directorate General (DG) Environment that has prepared a couple of educational products also as hardcover material. Their products can be accessed at:

The youth section of the DG Energy:

UNEP, the United Nations Environment Programme, provides leadership and encourages partnership in caring for the environment. UNEP aims at inspiring, informing, and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations. Further information about UNEP is available at:

The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) promotes environmental education through its international programs; Bandera Azul (Blue Flag), Ecoescuela (Ecoschools), Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) School Forests (LEAF) and the Green Key (Green Key).

I hope these links are helpful and wish you all the best.

Kind regards
