GAP International History
Founded in 1989 in the USA, Global Action Plan International network is at the forefront of education for sustainable development and sustainable behaviour change, including carbon-neutral households, communities and workplaces.
Initial work saw the development of The Green Living Programme. This programme is a community-based campaign enabling large numbers of people to make simple changes to reduce their consumption habits. Moreover, this programme is the foundation of all of our work.
Global Action Plan Network
First, Global Action Plan expanded its network from the USA to the Netherlands. Then, they continued to expand to other countries like Canada, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and UK. Now, there are currently 27 countries worldwide who are members of the GAP International network.
While each team works towards the same mission, each is an independent entity with full responsibility for designing and delivering its own programmes. In addition to that, each member organisation manages their our finances and accounting. For information on the programmes GAP Ireland runs, click here.
