- Environmental project
The "Landesgemeinschaft Naturschutz und Umwelt Nordrhein-Westfalen e.V. (LNU)" (regional community for nature conservation and environment North-Rhine-Westphalia) promotes nature conservation and environmental protection. It strengthens its political importance by a union of the organizations that are active in this field. It sees itself as a lawyer of the interests of nature and environment and is independent of any political party.
As an umbrella organization the "LNU" is a union of - at present 75 - associations of voluntary nature conservation with approximately 300,000 individual members. The "LNU" was founded in Düsseldorf on May 11, 1976, and recognized in 1980 according to § 29 of the Federal Nature Conservation Law as the first nature conservation association in North-Rhine-Westphalia. This recognition includes that authorities and offices have to give the "LNU" a share in certain planning and authorization processes. In addition to that, the "LNU" is represented in many bodies, advisory councils and committees of the Land. The "LNU" organizes further vocational training courses.
