Our global work

Stay updated with SSNC and our partners work around the globe.

The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) is a member-based organisation that is more than a hundred years old and that has more than 226 000 members. The SSNC works to save the life of nature, as well as promote human health and global solidarity. Many of the environmental problems the SSNC works with are global, such as climate change and the spread of chemicals. In order to influence the conditions for global sustainable development, work is therefore required across international borders.

What we do

The SSNC’s global work is based on the operational areas that the organisation has decided on for the Swedish operation – agriculture and food security, climate, marine ecosystems and fisheries, chemicals and forest – as well as sustainable consumption.


By promoting Green Action Week and Big Shift Global, the SSNC wishes to contribute towards stronger organisations, active and knowledgeable consumers, as well as political decisions that drive developments in a sustainable direction.


In order to maximise our results we confine ourselves to a total of ten countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. The ten countries are Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, the Philippines, China, India, Indonesia, Brazil and Ukraine.


Do you have complaints about inaccuracies or irregularities in our association or any of the partner organizations SSNC supports? Our goal is to develop our work even more and we want to have an open and productive dialogue with members and the public.


The SSNC’s global work is founded on a conviction that change is driven by commitment, knowledge and determination. All work must be rightsbased and permeated by awareness of gender issues, and the endeavour for equality between the genders.


We keep a watchful eye on the world, and the environment. Read our blog posts here.
