“NG Europe”, is an international Erasmus project that empowers community leaders to take action on social and environmental issues. The programme will empower individuals and leaders of community organisations to create new opportunities in their local area that will enable them to increase their impact in protecting their local environment.
NG Europe Erasmus Training Programme will do this by:
Inspiring environmental leadership in communities
Providing education and training for environmental leaders in their local communities
Empowering organisations to protect their local environment
NG Europe will engage with individuals and communities interested in green and social entrepreneurship training, helping them to develop their idea into a viable enterprise, which can act as a catalyst in creating social and environmental change.
“NGEurope is a great opportunity for those wanting to take action in their communities, but feeling alone, lost, or somehow afraid to fight for what they believe in! Join us, share, learn, find your peers, and… boom! Make it happen!"
“Managed effectively, our local environment has the potential to deliver significant tangible economic, social, health and wellbeing benefits to people for generations. There is increased threat to some of our most sensitive habitats, but managing that demand effectively will mitigate such risk. NG Europe will bring significantly more people into contact with the natural environment, creating opportunities for environmental education, raising awareness of our unique natural heritage and the duty for its continued protection and enhancement.”
“NGEurope project responds to the need of socially- and environmentally-conscious individuals, groups and organizations to interact and improve. It inspires everyone to take action that multiplies positive contribution to society.”
“The training course was enlightening in every aspect. The interaction with social entrepreneurs across Europe as well as the tools and techniques learned will definitely impact our future actions.”
"The NGEurope project offers opportunities for leadership development and for the exploration of skills and interests. Participants will enrich their own communities by forwarding the NGEurope spirit."
"NGEurope is a great way to learn about social entrepreneurship and to start thinking in innovative ways as well as taking actions. Moreover, I met a lot of very inspiring people and gained a feeling of connection and solidarity with other European citizens."
"The main achievement of the NGEurope project is to create a network of people from diverse contexts, cultures, different experiences and ideas. I took the course because of my interest in successfully launching change initiatives. I learned new information through the theoretical sessions and sharing knowledge and experience in the group discussions during the course. It is an intensive course, with a very good methodology to learn about new tools to become more proactive or an initiative taker in the search of starting and developing ideas to establish a nonprofit environmental organization that can transform your community."
