Area of Interest


Focus on green community and tourism, fundraising and communications


In January 2018 four more workshop sessions for young CSO leaders of the Ararat region (Armenia) were delivered. The workshops covered the following topics:

  1. Successful fundraising: how to make you CSO/initiative sustainable
  2. Media and Communications: make you CSO audible
  3. Green community: decreasing pollution, saving money
  4. Tourism in rural regions: how CSOs can work with this sector

The topics were chosen based on the previous surveys and interviews among the youth of Ararat region. Despite the variety and diversity of the listed topics, the workshops’ curriculum covered only the practical aspects of these themes.

The main goal of these sessions was to create a platform for civic leaders in the region, where they can share their ideas, elaborate on their challenges and strengthen their professional cooperation. Being assigned to practical tasks, case-based examples and group projects, which were included in the workshops’ curriculum, participants got an experience of collaborative working and acquired hands-on skills. The latter is going to help them to implement joint projects and tackle real-life issues in Ararat region in the future.
