Online Training Course: Building the Vision

On the 18th – 23rd of May, 2020, 25 participants from countries around the world came together for the ‘Building the Vision’ Online Training Course.

We are very grateful to have counted on our partner organisations and member organisations without which we would not be able to organise such a successful event.

Thank you to Yeghvard youth-ecological NGO and FYCA from Armenia, Association Argonauta from Croatia, Umbrella from Georgia and ”Common Sense” Youth Organization from Azerbaijan.

 This Online Training is the first part of the “Imagining the Future” project, which is composed of 4 activities: online training course, two international training, and local actions.

During the 6 days, participants learned, built and focused on the necessity of different organisational aspects such as membership management and fundraising. We believe that this online training provided the participants and their organisations with the right base before diving into advocacy and political lobbying on local, regional, national, and international levels.

The objectives of the Online Training were:

  • Gain competences and skills needed to advocate, campaign and lobby for environmental policies on local level;
  • Learn how to develop the organisational structure and vision, mission & values for an organisation as well as practical skills of training it;
  • Learn how to properly set up aims and objectives for your organisation and how to practice non discrimination and how to create inclusive atmosphere within your organisation;
  • Gain knowledge of membership management and develop skills in creating fundraising strategies and crowdfunding campaigns;
  • Have the opportunity to present your movement or organisation and to share your previous experience and establish the common ground and new partnerships with other participants;
  • Have the chance to talk to other learners and youth workers from all over the world, and learn from each other;
  • Have the chance to work on the exciting training course outputs (articles, videos, infographics, etc.).
