Dear colleague in sustainable development,
We are proud to present you the second volume of our Green Agenda Newsletter. The Newsletter provides information on ongoing activities, upcoming events and success stories in and from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia concerning local sustainable development. In each Newsletter we will also highlight an aspect of the methodology used for these local processes, the Green Agenda method. These processes are coordinated by 19 local partner NGOs, 6 trainers groups and Milieukontakt International. At the moment, 20 communities around the Western Balkans are involved. These communities are all very different in many aspects, but they all have committed inhabitants and local authorities that are willing to invest time and energy into a better future that preserves and improves local natural and cultural-historical values. Another special and shared feature of these communities is that the local stakeholders are in fact the motor in the formulation of a joint strategy and action plan as well as their implementation. They have truly embraced the Green Agenda method as developed by Milieukontakt International over the last decade.
We hope you will find the Newsletter Green Agenda of interest for your work or voluntary occupation, and invite you to share it with whomever you think would also be interested. Please do let us know if you have any questions or suggestions concerning our programme “Green Agenda in the Western Balkans” or this Newsletter. You can find our contacts at page 4 of the Newsletter.
