We are engaging in green capacity building since 2007. It all started in the most southeastern part of Kenya. Over the years we were working in Southeast Asia, especially in Vietnam, made experiences in Germany and Ethiopia. During capacity building activities with participants that speak different languages, the use of drawings to support the spoken word became an excellent tool and added extra value to our work. The combination of green capacity building and visual communication is up to now the core competency of Greeneducation4all. The following references will give insides in our work and the lessons learnt.
