In August 30 until September 1, Munteanu Cristina attended to NGO Workshop to Improve the Understanding of Eu Environmental Policies and NGO’s Possibilities to Get Involved which took place in Tulcea, in the Danube Delta.
At the workshop participated representatives from “Europe and We Association” from Bulgaria, representatives from National Environmental Centre from Moldova, representatives from EcoContact, Eco-Tiras, from Romania were representatives from FocusEcoCenter, CEDD, and Eudemos Association, and from Austria, Barbara Gory represent Umweltd.
The event was organized by Ecological Counselling Center Galati in co-operation with EEB – European Environmental Bureau, Brussels.
The objective of this seminar was to know more information about EEB, its objectives and its way of working, information about the regional NGO’s and their activities, brief outline of the EU decision-making process and the role of NGO’s and other stakeholders in the process, we have learned more about the rights of EU citizens and NGO’s, we got an up-date on the most important policy developments under the Juncker Commission and maybe the most important thing was to had an open debate on the NGO’s needs, where the EEB can provide support and how to strengthen cooperation.
Also we discussed about what we can do for better enforcement, different options to submit complaints and the recent developments in the EU and what they mean for us.
Regina Schneider which is Head of Membership and Enforcement presented the EEB’s work priorities of the coming months and the draft work programme for 2016.
Camelia Ionescu from WWF Danube Carpathian Programme, Bucharest showed us a presentation about the Danube Delta Vulnerability to Climate Change.
In the next day we made a trip in Danube Delta where we saw many species of birds, two lakes, Letea Forest and the sand dunes from here. Also we visited Delta Information Center in Crisan.
