Since the very beginning, the CME has sought to establish its activities within an international framework in order to contribute to the creation of a real Euro-Mediterranean eco-citizenship.
To this end, the CME has developed exchanges and various joint activities with associations, groups, international organisations, training establishments and individual volunteers in Europe and around the Mediterranean rim.
In the 1990’s, the first environment campuses provided the opportunity for numerous students from Eastern Europe to participate for the first time in international exchanges.
Between 1997 and 2000, with the “Ateliers Méditerranéens d’Initiative Associative” and with the support of the European Union (MEDA Democracy programme), the CME contributed to the development of practical information-sharing between various leaders in the area of environmental education in the Mediterranean. These exchanges were prolonged through the Euro-Mediterranean Network for Environmental Education and a project called “Women and sustainable development in the Mediterranean”.
The CME is currently involved in several areas linked to environmental education, local sustainable development and the protection of landscape and nature.
It is also developing a large number of activities participating in the prevention of natural hazards, with the intention of developing a real shared culture of natural hazards awareness among the citizens of the Mediterranean rim.
Established in Greece and Morocco, the CME is an associate member of the United Nations Environment Programme—Mediterranean Action Plan. (UNEP-MAP).
