Course in basic Environmental knowledge

A better understanding of environmental knowledge can help the stakeholders recognize what is invading public environmental rights, including any existent and potential pollutants, to ensure the pollution incident can be found and reported immediately. The training aims at strengthening the capacity of the organizations and individuals involved in the processes where pollution victims report or appeal pollution incidents. In doing so they will be better prepared to handle the reports/appeals professionally, efficiently and correctly.

Where: Guilong Hotel, Guiyang, Guizhou

Seminar on negotiation techniques

Negotiating technique training is aiming to improve the negotiation techniques of EPB Officials and Environmental Court Officials from both provincial and local level of Guizhou Province, and strengthen their capacity to negotiate – or rather mediate – in disputes and conflicts between the public (typically villagers) and the polluter (typically industries).

When: 30th August 2013

Where: Guilong Hotel, Guiyang, Guizhou

In the long run, the environmental knowledge and negotiation technique training will help to improve the public’s access to environmental right and justice.
