The Ecologist’s Movement of Macedonia is a non-governmental, non-profit and apolitical organisation. It includes 23 national environmental organisations as full members and was established to coordinate the work of existing local groups working on environmental issues. As members of Friends of the Earth International (FoEI), Youth and Environment Europe (YEE) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the group has very active partnerships with neighbouring NGOs.
Our objective is to raise public awareness about environmental protection, sustainable development, and preservation of nature with the lowest level of impact.
Activists organise a wide range of activities and public campaigns; we organise discussions on environmental issues with a range of audiences, talks with experts, direct actions, protests, and produce awareness raising publications and leaflets. Part of our work involves trainings, workshops, and educational sessions in primary and secondary schools, and we lobby on behalf of the environment at a national level. Every year we recognise people, organisations and public institutions, both good and bad with our public presentation of the Green, or Rotten, apple award.
