We’re always excited to see people exploring the idea of membership. We are convinced that the climate and ecological crises require deep collaboration across societies, and civil society has a major role to play in building bridges, forming alliances and working together to ensure a future for all.
We also believe that Climate Action Network Europe is a fundamental building block in that process of interconnecting organisations and raising our collective voice. Strengthening the Network is a constant process and we have a dedicated Secretariat committed to bringing Brussels to you and your voice and work to Brussels.
Our diverse and growing Network is a testament to the benefits and rewards of collective objectives and collaborative working structures – every member plays a part in the development of the Network and there is a space for your organisation as well.
CAN Europe Membership is open to non-governmental/community-based non-profit organisations, situated in Europe, which have an interest in the promotion of sustainable development and are active in, or have a focus on, climate change issues. CAN members have administrative independence and pursue their own mandates, organisational aims and objectives.

You can also read the CAN Europe Statutes and the CAN Charter (published by CAN International) for network rules and guiding principles for network governance.
