Environment Foundation of Turkey celebrated its 39th anniversary of establishment on 1 February 2017. An objective assessment of the past 39 years exhibits that the Foundation has provided many diverse services and has assumed a leading role in various fields. Recalling the fact that the concept of environment was barely known and discussed and that there were not any publications concerning the issue and above all, legal arrangements did not exist 39 years ago, the significance of the point reached today may be grasped easily.
EFT, having rather staged public highlighting and awareness efforts in the first years following its foundation, later focused on the technical issues, which were ignored by the majority of people.
While rendering such services, we have never swerved from the observance of laws and the classical foundation understanding for 39 years. We have not been involved in extremist movements. We have not dealt with politics. We have not stepped out of the line drawn for a moderate, balanced and realistic NGO.ARCHIVE
