MILIEUKONTAKT
MACEDONIA
[MKM]

ASSOCIATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

MKM is a non-for-profit, civil society organization, supporting initiatives of civil society organizations (CSOs) on environment, nature and sustainable development. It was established in 2012 following 12 years of successful implementation of Milieukontakt International programs in Macedonia.
Our vision is to help create a strong, visible, professional, selfsustainable environmental CSO movement, based on the principles of democracy and openness. This means a movement that is highly visible in society, able to raise public awareness and capable of playing an important role in policy and decision-making processes, on local, national and international level.

OUR MISSION
AND APPROACH

ASSOCIATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

MKM initiates partnerships to improve the quality of life by enhancing people’s participation in the development of environmentally sustainable societies. It cooperates with international partners, because environmental problems do not stop at borders. Many of the current environmental challenges are worldwide. Locally, people can get support and learn from the experiences of others working on the same problems in other parts of the world. MKM connects people, organizations and networks that deal with the same challenges and want to cooperate to enhance people’s participation in defining their own future. MKM provides people with the means and skills to use the possibilities for participation, including training, advice, assistance and seed financing. As participatory decision-making processes are essential in these partnerships, MKM focuses on designing and implementing tools for participatory learning, decision making, and project implementation.
