Environmental Literacy Networking (ELN) Project Training Programs

Environmental Literacy Training of Trainers

Purpose of the Program: 

The aim of this training is to create a pool of trainers for the “Sustainability and Ecological Literacy”, and “Climate Literacy” dissemination training carried out within the scope of the project. Only people recommended by ELN member organizations can attend the training. In this five-day training, the up-to-date scientific information on sustainability, ecological literacy, and climate literacy is shared with participants with participatory methods. While the content of the program to be implemented in the dissemination training is transferred practically, the communication skills of the participants are also supported. After completing the program, information and experience sharing continue through regular meetings with the trainers added to the ELN trainers pool. The dissemination training carried out during the project are carried out with the trainers from ELN trainers pool and an expert from Yuva Learning Center team.
