Project description

During this training course Environmental Management Systems (EMSs) were made accessible to youth active in European NGOs. 12 participants shared and exchanged knowledge about environmental problems in their home countries - being Czech Republic, Albania, Germany, Poland and Macedonia - and learned about related legislation. They specified criteria and gained skills that can be applied as part of EMSs in youth NGOs and their networks in order to measure the impact of their activities on the environment. Different methods based on non-formal and experiential learning, such as inter-active presentations, workshops, discussions, role plays, etc. were applied during the project.

At the moment guidelines for local associations, authorities and companies are created which shall ensure the exploitation of the project's results in the surroundings of each participating organization.

Objectives

Delegates were trained to act as multipliers who offer related events (such as training courses and informative sessions) themselves, and thereby help to decrease the negative impact in their own NGOs as well as in other local organizations and companies using the initial project as an example.
