Together for cleaner seas
KIMO is a network of local governments, working together for healthy seas, clean beaches, and thriving coastal communities.
With over 80 member municipalities in eight countries, we represent more than five million citizens in Europe.
KIMO stands for Kommunernes International Miljøorganisation (Local Authorities International Environmental Organisation) and was founded in Denmark in 1990. Our mission is to prevent pollution and to protect, preserve and enhance the seas and coastal waters of the North-East Atlantic and Baltic regions for future generations.
Our members work to find, implement and share positive solutions. We believe that through cooperation and collaboration, we can tackle the most pressing challenges facing the marine environment. Together, we are a powerful voice that influences decision makers at regional, national and international levels.
KIMO members also enjoy opportunities to exchange knowledge and experience nationally and internationally, keep up to date with important developments in laws and regulations and to develop and take part in projects with real local impacts.
