PROJECT NAME: Sustainable Development in Lake Areas:
Empowering Local Initiatives and Civil Society

Four workshops are organised by Forum Synergies and Global Nature Fund in the framework of the project “Sustainable Development in Lake Areas” supported by Fondation de France.

The general objective of the project is to support initiatives in sustainable development by exchange of good practice of participatory implementation and local sustainable development. The exchange shall lead to capacity building of private actors, NGOs and local governments in environmentally sensitive areas. The thematic workshops will contribute to the development of local democracy and to a more participative management of environmental resources, in order to fill the gap between European citizens and their institutions, and also via feed-back to decision makers to contribute to environmental and rural policies that better meet peoples’ need for participation.

The first two workshops within the frame of the project took place at the Lake Võrtsjärv in Estonia on 15 – 18 June 2009 and in poland Milicz Pond, 21-24 October 2009, giving start to an active exchange between project partners and participants.
