Primary goal of NEPIS is to provide relevant data and information in a modular system (e. g. air pollution, water quality, waste management) about the state of the environment. Elements of the modular system are coherent and interchangable. The computerised and Internet accessible information system permits any citizen to identify environmental information associated  with sites located close to a specific location (e.g. home or employment location).

Green IT is the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using and disposing IT related hardware products in an efficient sustainable way with minimal or even no impact on the environment.

Green Software Engineering is the attempt to apply these "green" principles known from hardware products also on software products, software development processes and their underlying software process models.

The first main goal of the project is to to design a conceptual reference model supporting IT professionals and software users in the sustainable development and usage of software. The second main goal is to develop a software toolbox called "Sustainable Software Support Center" (S3C) that assists IT professionals in realizing systainable, resource-friendly software products.

At the Fourth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, held in Budapest in June 2004, ministers of health and environment from across the European Region committed their countries to updating their NEHAPs in the light of the outcomes of the Conference, which included an agreement to develop by 2007, action plans to protect children's health against environmental hazards.

The development of NEHAPs across Europe was first agreed in Helsinki in 1994, following the publication of the Environmental Health Action Plan for Europe (EHAPE), then in June 1999, environment and health ministers committed themselves to endorsing and strongly supporting the implementation of NEHAPs in the London Declaration, at the Third Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health.

By 2002, 43 countries had developed NEHAPs and were beginning to implement them.  NEHAPs are usually drawn up in cooperation with a wide range of partners, including professional and technical experts, national, regional and local authorities and nongovernmental organizations.

LA21 can be understood as a process for improving the quality of life in communities by a mix of measures that are developed in a participative process by different local actors (public authorities, enterprises, NGOs, associations, etc.). It includes systems and processes for the integration of social, economic and environmental development and is grounded in a strong cooperation of local actors and institutional building for the development and implementation of a strategic development plan.
 
The existing experience shows that there is a lack of appropriate skills among some of the competent personnel, not only in the thematic areas of sustainability and LA21 (concepts, relevant legislation, environmental management, mobility, waste management, indicators, social issues, etc.), but also in the process facilitation skills that are crucial to the success of this multi-stakeholder activity (good governance). Additionally, knowledge on local management issues, including the local political system, competences and decision-making processes, as well as local specific sustainability questions is necessary.
 
The TRAIN to LA21 project aimed at contributing to the development of skills and awareness amongst groups within the local communities that are involved in promoting and developing action in the field of regional sustainability, thus enabling the former to act as facilitating and dissemination agents. In order to accommodate the needs of various regions and target groups, a web-based training tool was developed with a flexible modular structure, which ensures their wide applicability in different European regions.
 
The Train to LA21 Traing Tool known as OP3 (Overview, People, Process, Projects) consists of four modules which are freely interchangeable, enabling users, at any given point, to choose the information that they require. All four modules have been illustrated with diagrams, tables, maps, colour plates and a multitude of everyday practical case studies and real-life examples of Local Agenda 21 implementation in the various partner regions. The OP3 modules, slides and didactic guidelines for trainers, together with articles, success stories, news and events are available online at the project website.
