HEPF is a member of the Environmental Partnership

Our mission

The Hungarian Environmental Partnership Foundation aims at enhancing the development of an environmentally aware, participatory democratic society and institutional system by strengthening and supporting the civil environmental movements.

The foundation promotes the development of the environmental movement trough providing grants, training, fellowships and technical assistance where necessary.

Our natural heritage

In 2005 we contracted the Foundation for our Natural Heritage (established by the Ministry of Environment) to manage the disbursement of its funds. The call for proposals was announced in early spring, and the Board selected 28 proposals of concrete, hands-on nature conservation activities for support.
