Who we are

banner Block 1

The European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils (EEAC) is a network of advisory bodies established by national or regional governments.  EEAC members offer independent advice to their respective national or regional governments, proposing solutions and new understandings of the critical challenges facing our societies and the planet.  

What we do

banner Block 4 what do we do 2

The EEAC provides an operational framework for joint activities, knowledge sharing, dialogue, informed debate and deliberation among different stakeholders and disciplines. It seeks to bridge the gap between scientific knowledge and policymaking and to enrich the advice that individual advisory bodies can give to their governments by encouraging exchange of experience among members. The EEAC network also enables its members to better anticipate and prepare for forthcoming strategic issues at the European level.

Working groups

Working groups (WG) are a key mechanism of collaboration in the EEAC network. The WGs bring together the views of individual advisory bodies on selected and strategic topics, such as sustainable development, energy and ecosystems.
