Green Steps

The Green Steps multimedia toolkit is one of the capacity-building components of the SECTOR project. It aims to improve understanding among citizens of Belarus regarding sustainable lifestyles, citizens’ environmental rights, and changes that individuals can make in their everyday lives to contribute to sustainable development. The primary targets are members of civil society organisations in Belarus, but there is also valuable information for educators, students and families. The Green Steps awareness-raising materials, which can be tailored to individual countries in the future, are divided into four sections: a virtual tour around a number of locations typically visited in the course of everyday activities; information on 28 topics related to environmental protection and sustainable development; a series of  49 factsheets that can be used in educational and group activities; and an encyclopedia containing information on 232 species common to Europe. Users can assess their level of awareness regarding environment and sustainable development issues by playing the interactive game or completing the test.

Green Steps was developed in close cooperation with a number of Belarusian civil society organisations.
