The Global Environment Outreach Centre (GEOC), is a joint initiative of UNU–IAS and the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ). It was initially established in 1996 as the Global Environmental Information Centre (GEIC). GEOC contributes to improve communications and outreach both in Japan and globally, and in particular with civil society, aiming to involve groups identified in the UN Agenda 21 in the implementation of sustainable development. GEOC plays an important role in supporting the communications and outreach activities of UNU-IAS, engaging with civil society organizations focusing on environmental issues by conducting research and disseminating information online and through symposiums and seminars.
