The Geneva based Zoï Environment Network is a new answer to some stubborn old questions, an international non-profit organization.
Water shortages, industrial legacies and potential impacts of climate change are examples where an environmental problem can become a security issue. Zoï is specialized in analyzing (“know”) and communicating (“tell”) frictions between the environment and society, and hereby eventually contributing to resolving them (“act”).
We design creative information products for decision-making and provide assistance to local, regional and national authorities, corporations and individuals who are ready to find solutions to these complex environmental challenges. We strive to link regional and local issues to the global environmental agenda. A spin-off of UNEP/GRID-Arendal, Zoï operates at arm’s length from international organisations, in particular with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP).
