To bring closer the concept of green entrepreneurship to the target beneficiaries (grassroots CSOs), and to mobilize the community in an advocacy campaign that will facilitate the EU approximation process of the national agricultural and rural development programmes and policies towards the EU CAP reform, the project organizes two-module training in:
- i) Advocacy, lobbying, networking and constituents empowerment, and
- ii) Green economy and entrepreneurship.
On February 13 and 14 the first training of trainers was organised in Skopje. It focused on advocacy, lobbying and networking, and was attended by a total of 14 representatives of the 7 project implementing partners. Their further task will be to transfer the gained knowledge to the grass-root organizations.
