Life International Foundation for Ecology was established in 1995 in Karlstad, Sweden and has since grown into a global actor working for sustainable development. 

The key focus areas and expertise of LIFE is in the field of Sustainable Development and we have long experience of working in areas including Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Pedagogy, Environmental- and Project Management.

During the last 5 years we have also focused on development in the educational sector and have developed certification for schools that want to improve their work with sustainability. We have also, as one of the first organizations in the world, developed a training in Sustainable Project Management that gives practical tools for how to implement sustainability in projects.

In some of the selected countries, we are establishing "hubs" where education and communication can be carried out locally on a larger scale. All participants in our programs, who are part of our network, are decision makers in their organizations and their knowledge and contacts are the basis for the activities that are built locally in their countries.
