Landvernd was founded in 1969 as a national, non-governmental, environmental organisation with emphasis on nature conservation. Over the last two decades, Landvernd’s efforts have increasingly concentrated on protecting Iceland's unique wilderness and landscapes, especially in the uninhabited central highland of the country, due to an increasing demand of energy production. Since 2000, Landvernd has also expanded to become a leading NGO in environmental education in Iceland. Furthermore, over the past three years, the organisation has focused on climate change and the impact of the ever-increasing number of tourists visiting the delicate nature of Iceland.
