Climate Change
An Environment Network for Geneva

The Geneva Environment Network (GEN) is a cooperative partnership of over 50 organizations based in the International Environment House and elsewhere in the Geneva area. GEN works towards increasing cooperation and networking between its members which include a range of United Nations and non-governmental organisations. It reaches its aims by: organising and hosting meetings on the environment and sustainable development, such as GEN Roundtables and international workshops, promoting the spread of information and raising public awareness of environmental issues, maintaining a resource centre and cybercafé, providing conference services to the Environment House and publishing Environment House News, a round-up of topical essays on the environment and sustainable development, and the Geneva Green Guide.

Among the events organised by GEN in 2011 were briefings to students based in Geneva, a Roundtable for the preparation of the second Earth Summit (Rio+20), and a workshop on the Green Economy and green jobs.
