The IUCN European Union Representative Office is located in Brussels, often referred to as the capital of the European Union (EU). The Office represents IUCN's interests to the EU and acts as liaison between the IUCN constituency, the EU institutions and Brussels-based partners. The Office is the focal point for EU nature policies, EU fundraising, partnerships and networking. Influencing decisions and raising awareness of nature conservation among the EU institutions are also at the core of its mandate.
