The project sets up a School for Environmental Activism that will organize events to encourage civil society to be more involved in environmental decision-making. It also aims to improve public knowledge and awareness about the environment.
In the coming four months, the School will organize roundtable meetings to address waste management and other environmental challenges facing Montenegro in its EU integration process. It will also organize clean-up campaigns in Cetinje, Niksic, Podgorica and Ulcinj.
The School will be opened tomorrow by the Head of the OSCE Mission to Montenegro, Ambassador Šarūnas Adomavičius, the Deputy Minister of Tourism and Sustainable Development, Sinisa Stankovic, the Director of the Environmental Protection Agency, Daliborka Pejovic, and the Director of "Ozone", Aleksandar Perovic.
The School's first event, a roundtable meeting to discuss whether regional sanitary landfills should be a permanent or temporary solution, will begin after the opening. Representatives of the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism, the Environmental Protection Agency, Niksic's municipal authorities and "Ozone" will take part in the discussion.
Journalists are invited to cover the event, which is scheduled to start at 11.00 on Thursday, 31 March 2011, at hotel Onogost, Njegoseva street 24, in Niksic.
