Identification of pilot communities
We will identify three communities in each country where we will start a Green Agenda process.
A thorough analysis of the background is needed: what documents or obligations for documents or plans exist in the community? Who are the stakeholders and what can be expected from them?
The public start of the Green Agenda process is the first meeting for all stakeholders, in which the process is explained and interest in participation is identified among those present.
Local Working Groups
Local thematic Working Groups will be created in each community which will consist of approx. eight representatives of local authorities, businesses, NGOs and interested citizens. These froups will carry out the Green Agenda analysis.
Local Working Group activities
The Working Groups will develop ideas for small activities.
Training of Trainers
Trainings will be organized for trainers groups that will support the coordinating NGOs and the local Working Groups in their work. The trainers will be trained in the Green Agenda method, including best practices and examples from other countries.
Training on ICT and Information Management
We will organise a training on information management and IT tools. This can provide a good start for sharing information and ideas among the participating communities effectively later on in the programme.
The Green Agenda document includes an analysis as well as a strategic plan, an action plan and a monitoring plan. This document is adopted by the local authorities and implemented by the local community. One of the characteristics of the Green Agenda method however is that it focuses not only on the creation of a document, but also on the actual implementation of the ideas laid down in the document: pilot projects – small projects implementing part of the Green Agenda plans.
