Ecologistas en Accion is a confederation of more than 300 environmental groups in towns and cities in Spain. It is part of the so-called social ecologism, which holds the view that environmental problems have their origin in an increasingly globalized production and consumption model, from which other social problems also derive, and that must be transformed if an ecological crisis is to be avoided. To this end, it carries out awareness campaigns, public or legal complaints, while at the same time developing concrete and viable alternatives in each of the areas in which it carries out its activity. In addition to the local groups, there are thematic areas integrated by volunteers from different groups, one being about the Marine Environment.
