The idea of the project “Sustainability in NGOs” came from the realisation that many environmental NGOs struggle with day-to-day work, administrative tasks and maintaining the quality of their work and activities.
YEE wanted to address these issues with this online project. We aimed to create a space where our members and other interested youth organisations could expand their knowledge on various topics connected with organisational management: strategic planning, working with people, project management, organising environmentally-friendly projects.
The main aim of the project was to explore the concept of a sustainability in youth NGOs in order to improve the quality of work of youth organisations.
With this project the following outcomes were created by the following activities:
Webinar on topic related to environmental principles of youth organisations.
Brief how-to guides on various topics connected with sustainability in organisations.
YEE aims to unite environmental youth non-profit organisations in Europe in order to enhance international cooperation, increase knowledge about nature, raise awareness of environmental problems and to strengthen participation of youth in environmental decision-making.
