NOAH is a non-profit, non-governmental environmental organisation.
NOAH aims to protect the environment by actively preventing environmental damage as well as fighting its root causes and pointing out alternatives.
NOAH works with environmental policy and we promote environmental education and awareness raising on changes in life-style necessary to save the environment.
NOAH works internationally and networks with grassroots organisations in many countries. We support the principle of 'environmental space', which means that every person in the world has the right (but not the duty) to use the same amount of natural resources and produce the same amount of pollution.
is a network of local groups all over Denmark. Some groups focus on
local issues, others work on specific issues such as agriculture,
energy, traffic, and water or on cross-cutting aspects such as education,
publications (NOAH issues books, a magazine and a newsletter) or administration.
Our work relies heavily on volunteers.
