With the help of our program, we want to promote awareness of responsibility for the environment in Eastern European societies, to observe and register the law-making processes in the field of ecology and implementation of environmental law, bolster the active participation of civil actors and to maintain a dialogue between citizens, politicians and experts in the field of climate and ecology.
For this purpose we support the journalists, non-governmental organizations and active citizens from Eastern Europe in their quest to make environmental information more accessible, to carry on projects concerning the environment, energy efficiency and the development of green technologies; we support the use of alternative and renewable energy sources, establishment of contacts in the region and beyond, as well as the attempts to influence political, economic and social issues through an active participation in seeking for solutions.
Among our partners there are organizations such as the ‘Brot für die Welt’, German Federal environmental fund, World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the Goethe Institute in Moscow, the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Deutsche Welle, Association of Journalists n-ost, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Germany.
Our current project is targeted at the development of global and local responsibility for the climate protection in Russia and Ukraine. The project enhances awareness of global responsibility of Russia and Ukraine in the area of climate protection in society and politics. Another goal is to gain support for international agreements on the part of both countries and to bolster their close cooperation at the European level. In addition, one of the main objectives of this project is to improve competencies and expand the abilities required for the implementation of specific climate goals and sustainable policies.
