Environmental Terminology to Help You Stay Up-to-date with Key Terms

YourTerm ENVI is a terminology project aiming at creating a multilingual glossary of the environmental field and promoting the harmonisation of environmental terminologies.

Rather than a concept, the environment is one of the major issues at stake in the questions that contemporary societies are asking about their identity and their future. They must rethink their model in order to build the foundations for a more sustainable, positive and fairer future. Sustainable development is at the heart of discussions in all fields.


Find and use the relevant terminology resources.


Consult the concepts and terms of the ongoing project and connect with the partners in the project.



#MondayReading: Climate Change Key Terms in 23 Languages

For this week, we decided to dedicate our #MondayReading category to climate change. From the moment though that terminology is our passion, what could be better than a reading related to climate change valuable terms? Thus, we present you the brochure produced by the General Secretariat of the Council in 2011 entitled Climate Change Key Terms in 23 Languages.

Using the right terminology to help save the planet

We bring to you this refreshed post originally published on the 25th of January, 2016 after the recent events affecting the Paris Agreement. In this post you will find an interesting reflection on the role that terminology plays in the construction of social dialogue and in the success of global conversations, and also a useful glossary in relation to the issues covered by the Paris Agreement. We hope you find it interesting!
