One of our core tasks is to inform Europeans about the state of Europe’s environment. Among others, our annual publication Signals highlights key environmental issues and tries to make environmental information as accessible as possible to non-experts. Although it is highly informative, it is written in a non-technical language in form of short thematic sections and interviews. It is available in 25 European languages.
