Call for Applications, “Green Training” and “Green Policies” in UkraineTraining 09.08.2017
CDN is welcoming you to take part in a series of trainings titled “Green Training and Green Policies”. It will consist of two activities, which will take place in Ukraine this autumn. We are planning to gather 25 young activists who have strong ties to or are willing to become a part of the Green Movement from the RUMB (Russia, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus) region.
During these trainings, we will have a chance to explore the Green idea, Green Movement and supporting mechanisms of the Green European family. Furthermore, we are going to explore ways of influencing policy in the RUMB region.
The working language of the trainings is Russian, but some of the sessions will be provided in English (translation is going to be provided, if needed).
Trainings are going to take place in the following order:
September 15th-18th, 2017: Green Training
The first training will concentrate on providing you with a better understanding of the Green Movement and ideology. Here you will find the answers to all your questions connected to this topic, for example:
- who are the greens?
- what do they stand for?
- What are the Green pillars for grassroots movement?
- what can I do in my organisation?
We will be discussing burning issues of local activism and find possible solutions
November*, 2017: Greening Policy
*Dates to be decided
In the final, second part of the series, we are going to switch to a specific topic from the general Green idea, relevant for the Region’s Green political development. The topic will be decided upon between the two trainings, during the online learning process, according to the participants’ proposals.
What you can expect to accomplish from these trainings?
- Deepen the understanding of Green values and Green Idea in the region
- Explore the ways in which Green activism is connected to Green Politics
- Explore networking as an important part of a growing movement
- Examine ways of influencing policy
- Develop new cooperation
Note: Selected participants are expected to take a part in both trainings. The deadline for submitting the application is 20th of August.
Accommodation and meals during the trainings, working materials as well as travel costs to Ukraine, are fully covered by the organisers.
