CENSE members have long been thought leaders in environmental and sustainability management, first in Portugal, and now internationally. They have developed analytical tools, supported policy-making, and were present in first tier international forums, both at the European and Global level. CENSE members have been interviewed and their work featured hundreds of times by all key Portuguese media, and several leading international outlets.
For example, CENSE members are leaders in two key Portuguese Environmental Non-governmental Organizations – ZERO and GEOTA – with a strong influence in public opinion towards environmental and sustainability issues. They have outreached to the broader society via media (e.g. newspapers, radio and TV) and many invitations as guest speakers in conferences and other events.
