We are seeking big picture thinkers who want to have a tangible, long-term impact and who are driven by making a difference.

The path from the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012 to the passage of the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement, has seen strong levels of commitment by world leaders to shift to a green economy.

GEEA is promoting the widespread acceptance and increased importance of the green economy in the context of Sustainable Development and poverty eradication.

The Organization is working towards supporting emerging climate change actions towards the green, low-carbon, climate resilient development model. The organization is framed to operationalize green economy concepts on the ground through results and impact-oriented action.
