Founded in 2010, Greenmind Foundation is a small non-governmental organization aiming to protect biodiversity in Poland. Foundation was established and is governed by four experienced environmentalists , working – either currently or in the past – in administration, environmental ngos, ecological consultancy and science.
We aim at influencing policies and decisions related to nature protection in the country facing unprecedented influx of external funds directed to the development.
We participate in the administrative procedures aiming to grant environmental consents for controversial plans and projects. We also take part in public consultations of programmes and policies which frame the economic development , to make them environmentally sound.
In 2013 we started a project, funded by Swiss Contribution to the Enlarged European Union, seeking to monitor implementation of the Aarhus Convention In Poland, in particular – the efficiency of mechanisms safeguarding public access to the environmental information and public participation in decision making process.
