AEGN’s Directory of Environmental Organisations
The AEGN has launched a comprehensive map of Australian environmental organisations, the first of its kind in the world.
The directory includes a listing of close to 2,000 organisations from around Australia, working across all parts of the environment movement. Available on the AEGN’s website (www.aegn.org.au) the list is searchable by issue area, approach, geographic region and key words. Over 150 organisations on the map work in Western Australia, including close to 50 organisations with DGR status. In 2014/15 AEGN aim to include an additional set of organisations’ information, including Landcare groups and Indigenous Land and Sea Management groups.
The development of the directory has been a long and thoughtful process, involving representatives from philanthropy and from environmental non-government organisations. AEGN have captured information about where the organisations are located, the geographic reach of their work, the issues they are working on, and the approaches they take to achieve change. Over time, this information will be completed for all entries in the directory.
The Directory of Environmental Organisations and related capacity building work has been made possible with a generous grant from the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
