Recently our partner organization, Youth and Environment Europe carried out a training course, titled “Create Your Grassroots” in Kapraluv Mlyn Ecological center, Brno, Czech Republic. It was the second activity of YEE’s long-term project, called ‘‘Let Grassroots Grow!’’ supported by the European Youth Foundation, Council of Europe and Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. During the project, 24 participants from 14 countries gathered to learn and build their capacities and knowledge of grassroots movements, methods and structures. Federation of Youth Clubs of Armenia was represented by its First Secretary, Ani Poghosyan.
The objectives of the training course were:
– To explore, learn and practice diverse tools and methods of grassroots project management
– To give tools and knowledge on how to work with local authorities and get funding and support for grassroots actions
– To plan local grassroots-related action using new skills and tools
Ani was also delegated to the Annual Meeting of YEE which took place during the period of 7-9 July and has been selected as the Project Officer of YEE.
