Green Technology & Innovation Day at TechPark

11.01.2017

  On November 29 CENN hosted Green Technology and Innovation Day at TechPark Georgia. The event aimed at raising awareness of environmental issues throughout Georgia and introducing green technologies and innovative approaches to the audience.   At CENN we believe that using modern technologies both in Georgia and worldwide will make it easier to spread information about environmental challenges and increase community participation in bringing about lasting positive change. During the event, CENN unveiled the first ever environmental knowledge portal for the South Caucasus, a mobile application — GreenWatch and an educational e-game, Sort and Recycle.   The Caucasus Environmental Knowledge Portal (environment.cenn.org) is a platform that provides updated information to stakeholders on all kinds of environmental issues. The platform encourages public participation in environmental decision-making by providing readily accessible and relevant information to arouse public interest in environmental issues.  The portal makes scientific and policy-based information and popular articles available for anyone interested in the environment, both children and adults, concerned stakeholders and people already involved in environmental activities. The Platform was created by CENN with financial support from our donors.   The mobile app GreenWatch is another innovative tool created by CENN, which allows us to care for nature together. The app lets users highlight specific threats to the environment by sending information to CENN and other relevant actors, using easy taps and gestures. Taking advantage of faster, more modern means of communication, the app will bridge the gap between the public and government, helping them to work together to take care of the environment. The app was created in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resource Protection of Georgia and Tbilisi Municipality City Hall, with financial support from CENN’s donors.   An educational e-game Sort and Recycle was created for the purpose of raising public awareness on waste separation and recycling, targeting children aged 6 and above. The goal of the game is to help the younger generation understand that not all waste is garbage, that it’s possible to produce useful items by sorting waste and further recycling and that by recycling waste, we care for the environment since we save natural resources. The game, conceived of and supported by CENN, was developed by GeoLab, in the framework of the USAID-funded program “Waste Management Technologies in Regions”.

Who we are

20.12.2016

Hello friend!   Since 1998, when we created CENN, I have had the honour of working with many different people as part of our team. As Executive Director of CENN, I would dare to say that over the years we have succeeded in striving for excellence and brought together leaders united by one goal — to protect our environment.   When we first started operating in the politically turbulent environment here in the Caucasus, people around us were pessimistic about our ability to deliver on the vision we held, and it was hard not to be. The years since have been full of ups and downs, new people and challenges, wins and the occasional loss, but always moving forward! While reflecting on this time, on behalf of our entire team, I want to express our greatest gratitude to everyone who has shared this amazing journey with us — our friends, volunteers, partners, and donors — together, we have served the greatest value that we share, our love for our home, our planet!   At CENN we are confident that the coming years will be even more incredible, we are excited about upcoming challenges, which only make us stronger, and upcoming wins, as they motivate us to keep moving and aiming higher.   Thanks for walking with us!   Kindly yours,   Nana Janashia Executive Director
