Summary:

NGEnvironment arises as a relevant contribute for the EU horizontal priorities of improving relevant and high-level basic and transversal competences of EU citizens, in the scope of adult education and under the perspective of lifelong learning, as it aims at capacitate new leaders for change engagement, improving entrepreneurial, foreign language and digital skills and fostering employability, socio-educational and professional development, through NGO action.

 

By capacitating NGO leaders, NGEnvironment will contribute to improve/extend the supply of high-quality learning opportunities tailored to the needs of low-qualified adults so they acquire literacy and entrepreneurship skills, with the recognition of such skills.

 

NGEnvironment will specifically be tailored for adult audiences, fostering social cohesion, boosting talent and taking their specific needs/concerns into account, and delivering novel learning approaches through a holistic, participative, motivational pedagogical process that will ultimately result in the development of many key competences with a long-term effect on European active citizenship for sustainability.

 

Social inclusion will be achieved as NGEnvironment seeks to train new NGO leaders providing equal learning opportunities for all, despite their gender, religion, cultural background, age, etc. The project will foster social integration by creating jobs for socially segregated or low-skilled people.

Objectives:

The main general envisaged objectives are:

  • To support the development of a new generation of NGO leaders;
  • To provide relevant support to existing and future NGO leaders;
  • To be at the forefront of strategies and programmes for leadership development that incorporates best practices and current experience/expertise, from a multitude of countries and cultures across Europe (south, north and central).

 

Outcomes:

  • Initial Research Report that will be conducted in each country to set the state-of-the-art, establish the general guidelines and inform all development actions in the project.
  • Two Training Packages, a pedagogical one, directed at NGO mentors that will host new potential NGO leaders in the immersion programme, and one to specifically train adult new NGO leaders fostering a set of basic competences.
  • Online Platform containing all relevant information of the project, hosting a repository for outputs, as well as the associated NGO observatory for showcasing best practice and role models.
  • An Engagement Toolkit including paper based, online and audio-visual communication channels assuring a valorisation framework and broad outreach of the project and motivating participation.
  • Instructive videos with NGOs best practice and social impacts to provide a cadre of role models or exemplars to support project valorisation. A video documentary tracing the development history of the project will also be produced.
  • A ‘Survival Guide for NGO Founding and Funding’ that will be made available to continue to train and instruct potential new NGO leaders;
  • A Layman Report explaining the whole projects’ rationale, objectives, main conclusions and resulting case studies.
  • A Paper Policy stating why a change of policy approach towards NGO support might be relevant; the policy options available and the pros and cons of each option.
