Green Liberty - Latvia

by , 24 June 2008

Green Liberty’s mission is to develop a society in which people live in harmony with each other and their environment. The GL aims at informing people about the social and environmental implications of current trends in consumerism, trade and globalization; empowering people to participate more effectively in decisions that affect their lives directly and indirectly; and opposing abuses of power.

The Green Liberty (GL) was established in 1991 and registered as an non-profit NGO in 1993 (then as the Green Library of Environmental Protection Club). In 2000, the organization re-registered as Green Liberty.
