WISE

World Information Service on Energy ‒ WISE
Amsterdam, Netherlands

This organisation may not be a traditional think tank. We have included it in this list as we deem it to be a 'boundary' organisation – in other words, it might have some qualities or characterstics of a think tank.

WISE was founded in 1978 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Since then, it has supported grassroot groups and individuals to effectively oppose nuclear power. WISE seeks to counter nuclear power through the organisation of campaigns, building networks, lobbying and knowledge production (publications).
