Who We Are

The work of the Forum is overseen by a Management Committee which has representatives from NGO’s, Education and Library Boards, Higher Education and Government Departments.

The committee meets every quarter and liaises with Iona regularly.  The Committee members should have both a personal and organisational commitment to environmental education as well as expertise and experience.

The Forum has one part time member of staff, who co–ordinates the activities and oversees the day to day running of the Forum. The current contact for the Forum is Iona Meyer.  Iona can be contacted on 028 9045 5770 or by email iona@nienvironmentlink.org
