Ecodefense! is an international, non-governmental, non-profit, environmental organization founded in 1990 in Kaliningrad (former Koenigsberg) Russia. We stand on principles of deep ecology and biocentrism, combined with social responsibility and justice. We work to inform and involve more ordinary citizens in environmental and social activity through the organizing of educational events, environmental campaigns, non-violent direct actions and the spreading of environmental information. We are working to stop violations of human rights, and insists that the rights to a healthy environment and information are fundamental rights that must be available for every single person.
The Climate Change Threat
Paying attention to the growing threat of climate change, Ecodefense! started related activity in 1994. Some months before the United Nations Climate Summit [in Berlin], we organized the 'Climate Tour' in the ex-USSR, together with other European environmental groups.
