|History of IEES|
The idea to bring together experts and conduct Ecological Engineering activties within an international society was born at the 1st Conference on Ecological Engineering in Stensund, Sweden in 1991.
The Stensund Ecological Center with its 'Vattenbruket', a Wastewater Aquaculture greenhouse demonstrating Ecological Engineering principles of closed nutrient cycles served as a unique crystallization point.
Two years later, in October 1993 the society was officially founded in Utrecht, Netherlands by thirteen engaged participants.
The first annual meeting was held in June 1994 in Stangvik, Norway
Since then the network has been spanning widely around the globe with its headquarter today located in Switzerland.
