With 170 000 members and thousands of volunteers active at the ground level, Pro Natura is the biggest and oldest environmental grassroots organisation in Switzerland.
Their main focus is on protection of nature, both through advocacy work and specific conservation projects and management of protected areas.
Their vision is of a society based on sufficiency principles instead of endless growth, where nature can thrive. With this in mind, they also campaign for sustainable, local agriculture, responsible land-use and a transition to safe renewable energy. They work to educate children and the wider public, so that they feel closer to nature and develop a new relationship with it.
