On 10 February 2011, WMEN ran a workshop to promote environmental sustainability to the Third Sector and engage a broader range of organisations in addressing this issue.

The aims of the workshop were to:

  • Raise awareness about sustainable development and sustainable practice in the Third Sector and how it can be incorporated into the daily operations
  • Facilitate better links between environmental goals and the wider social/economic goals and motivations of Third Sector organisations, individuals and communities
  • Encourage Third Sector organisations to lead by example in mainstreaming the principles of environmental sustainability into all that they do.

The workshop was aimed at organisations currently delivering European projects or considering applying for European funding; with increasing emphasis on environmental sustainability, organisations are required to demonstrate their commitment to mainstream sustainable development.
