Capacity Building and Networking

The Capacity Building and Networking component aimed to increase knowledge and strengthen the skills of CSOs in relation to various key environmental and sustainability issues. It increased the capacities of CSOs, enabling them to become important partners in environmental decision making and policy development and implementation. It also aimed to strengthen the role of CSOs in the local community, enabling them to influence attitudes, behaviour and values to promote the concept of sustainable development.

Within this component, several one-week environmental trainings were organised for CSO representatives (the Master Classes and capacity-building trainings in Belarus and Moldova and the Young Environmental Leaders Programme), along with exchange study visits. The environmental education toolkit Green Steps was produced to promote environmentally sound attitudes and behaviour among members of the community using examples from everyday life and entertaining games.
