INFORSE is a meeting place for NGOs working on grassroots level as well as on national, regional and international levels, all united on a common strategy for a long- term sustainable development with phasing out of nuclear and fossil energy use.
The INFORSE network is facilitating practical and political exchange of experiences among NGOs, liaising with concerned multilateral agencies, creating political and public awareness, and seeking support for NGO activities.
INFORSE lobbies to promote sustainable energy solutions - renewable energy and energy efficiency - which utilise decentralised approaches. All activities seek to protect the environment, and to achieve development.
