CAN - International
About CAN International
Local Action, Global Traction
Climate Action Network (CAN) is a global network of over 700 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) working to promote government and individual action to limit human-induced climate change to ecologically sustainable levels. CAN members work to achieve this goal through the coordination of information exchange and NGO strategy on international, regional and national climate issues. Visit the global CAN website or read the latest issue of the CAN newsletter, Eco.
CAN has seven regional coordinating offices which co-ordinate these efforts in Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Europe, Latin America, North America, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Diverse environmental and development organisations from around the globe, ranging from large international groups such as World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Greenpeace and Oxfam to small local groups in developing countries such as Terre Vivante in Mauritania and the Green Coalition in the Philippines, work collaboratively within CAN.
Diverse Roots, Common Future
CAN members place a high priority on both a healthy environment and development that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (Brundtland Commission). Climate Action Network's vision is to protect the atmosphere while allowing for sustainable and equitable development worldwide.
