BW is the largest network of environmental CSOs in CEE. We monitor the activities of public banks and funds that are often obscure and function outside the realm of public scrutiny. Our priority has been the social and economic transformation of V4 countries, now turning our attention towards democratising the EU’s neighbourhood. BW’s programme “Development, Human Rights and Democracy” is looking to empower citizens to correct those in
power by developing models of participatory decision-making.

Our role will be to strengthen the capacities of civil society organizations working with communities and community representatives on participation in environmental decision-making and in working with communities already affected by environmental degradation. Out trainer will share our experience from over 20 years of activities focused on promotion of public control over decision-making affecting the environment and the people. We will also participate in the final meeting.
