World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is one of the world’s largest and most respected independent conservation organizations. WWF has a global network active in over 100 countries with almost five million supporters. WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the earth’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by:
• conserving the world’s biological diversity
• ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable
• promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.

The WWF education programme intends to train and motivate teachers and their pupils to take action for a sustainable and fair life on earth. With the project “European Schools for a living planet – taking action for Europe´s environment we want to add important environmental aspects to cross border school projects.
