Green capacity building
The keys to achieve sustainability are sound education and ownership of natural assets. That simple logic is the backbone of our capacity building approach. In Kenya, for example once the Boni tribe was educated about the assets that they own, they protected them. In Vietnam, the knowledge about the value of natural resources is starting to be integrated in the schools lesson plan. A few of the young generation are already starting to fight against depletion of resources and environmental pollution.
The overall aim should be to support positive changes. Greeneducation4all is offering tailor made capacity building services that range between one-time presentations and long-term facilitation in whole-institution approaches. The content and the method vary according to target group, time, financial resources and other site-specific frame conditions.
Target groups and beneficiaries for green capacity building can be found in schools, vocational training institutes, communities and businesses.
