About the course

This free modular course is directed at existing and future NGO leaders and staff members.

The programme will cover a variety of topics related to NGO work such as entrepreneurship, sustainability, valuation of natural and social capital, management, leadership and motivation, financial administration, funding and more. Taking part in the course will be an international experience as there will be participants and trainers from Austria, Ireland, Greece, Portugal, and Spain.
