With initiatives and offers for project development, cooperation and networking between different institutions, associations, companies and individuals, ENEA e.V. bundles individual initiatives and creates synergies.

What is ENEA?

ENEA is the "European Nature and Environment Academy" founded in 2005 .

ENEA e.V. promotes environmental and nature conservation and in particular the realisation of the principle of sustainability through European and transnational projects, actions and educational offers. ENEA supports the work of non-governmental organisations but also of administrations, companies, initiatives and networks.

ENEA e.V. supports and complements the work of


„Burg Lenzen - Europäisches Zentrum für Auenökologie, Umweltbildung und Besucherinformation“

in Lenzen as well as the work of

BUND Landesverband Niedersachsen e.V.

in Hannover. 

What motivates ENEA?

Nature has no boundaries that man draws on maps. Effective nature and environmental protection therefore requires cross-border cooperation between regions and nations. 

This requires cross-border cooperation not only between EU member states but also with non-EU countries. It is an ambitious goal - but one that is necessary to ensure the survival of our natural heritage not only in Germany and Europe, but throughout the world for future generations.


What does ENEA do?

The focus of the work of ENEA e.V. is on the development and implementation of European and transnational projects to support local and regional non-governmental organisations to strengthen their structures and to develop effective concepts for nature conservation and environmental protection.

  • National and international networking

  • Conception and support of training and further education in organizations and networks
