9 new Ecohubs were established in regions of Georgia by CENN to foster environmental education.
The initiative was implemented within Sustainable Forest Governance in Georgia funded by Austrian Development Cooperation.
Ecohub is a co-working space designed for planning and implementation of green ideas, environmental educational activities and discussion of environmental issues.
At the hub, young leaders can enjoy safe and comfortable environment, a variety of environmental literature and technical equipment.
The eco-hub is aimed at solving issues in the environmental sector and support human wellbeing and country’s sustainable development. All eco-hubs established by CENN are mapped on an interactive map where a description and a contact person is included for each.
For Ecohub leaders, the New Year started with strategic planning of their activities. Representatives of 13 eco-hubs assembled in Bulachauri Green Center on January 9-11 to develop 2018 action plans in accordance with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Current state and public environmental programs are integrated in the draft guidance documents.
A separate session was dedicated to state civic education program initiated by the Committee of Environment and Natural Resources Protection of the Parliament of Georgia along with eco-hubs.
The meeting was conducted in partnership with Waste Management Technology in Regions, Phase II (WMTR II) implemented by CENN with the financial support of USAID.
