Environmental Social Organization Network Naturefriends Greece / NFGR

The Environmental Social Organization Network Naturefriends Greece/ NFGR operates as nonprofit Panhellenic corporation. NFGR is inspired by Naturefriends International environmental and social principles. Its members struggle for a society in which no priviledges or discriminations related to political beliefs, religion, sex, skin colour, origin, social class etc. will exist, as, only in such a fair society can sustainability, solidarity and climate justice be fully implemented.

NFGR is regular member of International NFI (est. 1895), since 2008.

We cooperate with Universities, Political, Environmental, Social and other Institutes, Research and Scientific Agencies, groups, and public benefit purpose organisations and nonprofit entities, in order to inform, educate, and implement common projects on sustainable development and the protection of manmade environment (charter, art.4.11)
