JNM stands for Jeugdbond voor Natuur en Milieu, roughly translated as Youth Association for Nature and Environment. It’s an organisation for young people from the age of 7 to 26 in Flanders and Brussels, who have a curiosity for nature and care about the environment. In their local divisions they organise activities for children, like other youth movements in Belgium, but with the difference that they focus on nature and learn about the environment and sustainability. They try to be the living example by making their activities as environmentally-friendly as possible, and pass that vision on to their members.
