NGOs

Two of Brussels’ leading environmental NGO’s have joined forces in an effort to recruit additional environmental expertise. The opportunity is being circulated by ENEP as it presents a bid opportunity to become involved in shaping future environment policy.

One year since the entry into office of the current European Commission headed by Jean-Claude Juncker, environmental groups have criticised the EU executive for a paralysis in policymaking on issues related to the environment.

Over 20 NGOs have intensified their efforts to persuade the President elect of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker not to appoint a single chief scientific adviser (CSA) when he takes office on 1st November this year. The NGOs claim that the EU needs more diverse expertise than a single person can provide.
