Developing Skills of NGOs: Public Education to Raise Environmental Awareness

Developing Skills of NGOs: Public Education to Raise Environmental Awareness
November 2002 | Print | Book

To respond to the training needs of environmental NGOs in South Eastern Europe, a set of user-friendly guides was produced in the series Developing Skills of NGOs. Experts from SEE were involved in producing the guides, ensuring that the lessons contained met the specific needs of the region. The training guides are written for trainers but are also useful for NGO members seeking to develop their skills and knowledge on a particular topic. Each guide contains a concise discussion of the subject matter, lesson ideas on how the material can be taught, and a concrete timetable for a short seminar.

The purpose of this guide is to empower NGOs and help them realise their potential as effective activists for raising environmental awareness, as well as champions of knowledge, positive attitudes towards the environment and competency in citizen action skills.
