Within the project “Development of the ENV.net in West Balkan and Turkey: giving citizens a voice to influence the environmental process reforms for closer EU integration”, Advocacy Training & Resource Center (ATRC) with support from European Environmental Bureau (EEB) conducted training “The Role of CSOs in decision making process and advocacy tools” in Prishtina on 23-24 June. More than 30 representatives from CSOs including institutional officials were present in the training.
Have a look to the program.
The main objective of the course is to get a better understanding of the role of civil society (dealing with environmental issues) in environmental decision making process and in implementation of EU Directive for Environmental Information and Aarhus Convention, as well as forms and ways in organizing themselves with the aim of improving environmental situation (advocacy, lobbing, networking, etc.). The training also provided information to the participants on the Kosovo perspective in the above mentioned objectives.
