In consultation with one of the most successful National Committees of the IYPE, the National Committee of Portugal, it was agreed that Portugal would host that event in Lisbon: the Planet Earth Lisbon Event 2009 (PELE2009). The Portuguese President and several Ministries of the Portuguese Government generously provided their support to the event. The Portuguese Ministry of Economy and Innovation (MEI) offered hosting an IYPE Secretariat in its premises. That Secretariat will operate as a branch of the IYPE Secretariat in Trondheim, Norway, under supervision of the Executive Director of the IYPE Secretariat.
