Eco House is a non-profit organization whose main objective is to promote sustainable development through education, volunteering, advocacy work and environmental certification.
The organization consists of 10 internal Departments, each of which plan, develop and execute a variety of socio-environmental Programs.
ECO HOUSE INTERNATIONAL: “THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY”
The Department of International Relations, better known as “Eco House Global”, adapts the Organization’s Programs so that they can be carried out in other cities, countries and continents.
1. Research and analysis of the socio-environmental situation of the new territory (country / province / city).
2. Adaptation of Programs to the region’s idiosyncrasy and culture.
3. Execution and implementation.
4. Management control, update and experience capitalization.
