Be a leader in an environmental organisation
Start date: Aug 1, 2012,
The extensive experience of YEE working on youth environmental projects has highlighted the particular need for providing young people with knowledge and skills about leadership, and the opportunity to develop and practice their leadership skills. That is why YEE decided to organise a training course on leadership skills in environmental youth organisations. For our network competent and skilled leaders are very important in bringing local projects into European level, exchanging experiences, multiplying and involving many other young people. The training course ‘Be a leader in an environmental organisation’ is projected for young people who are leaders, coordinators, youth workers in their organisations and want to improve their skills in leading projects and managing groups. 25 young people from 11 youth organisations (from Latvia, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Albania, Serbia, Armenia, Macedonia, Italy and Czech Republic) will meet in the Czech Republic in October 2012 for 6 days to practice the skills of being a good leader in environmental projects. The TC addresses the need of youth organisations to have competent, experienced and skilled volunteers and workers that will know well how to use the potential and energy of young people involved in the organisation. We will focus especially on young people working in the field of environmental protection and non-formal education so that they could pass their knowledge in the topic well, involve in their projects many people and give the biggest possible impact to their activities. During the training course, we will train participants on how to organise better quality projects at local and international level (especially cooperation EU countries - neighbouring partner countries) and to promote exchange between partner organisations. We will try to initiate the exchange of experience and in this way show various points of view, methods and practices in leading and facilitating projects.
