CAUCASUS VOLUNTEERS HAVE LEARNED HOW TO RESOLVE CONFLICTS IN VOLUNTARY WORK
The event was attended by volunteers and NGOs from Krasnodar region, Adygeya and Stavropol region, who are working to monitor the legality of logging and identify the facts of illegal logging.
"The conflict resolution skill is useful both for working with government authorities and business representatives, and for communicating with other environmental organizations and the parties concerned. The same environmental issue can often be treated differently and affect the interests of different parties. Therefore, it is important to find the right and the most peaceful way to communicate," - explains Elena Cherkasova, Senior Coordinator of Russian Caucasus Ecoregional Office WWF-Russia.
For two days, on May 22nd and 23rd , the experts from the Conflict Center taught activists effective dialogue tools and analyzed various examples in practice.
On the Roundtable discussions follow-up, all participants received certificates confirming the development of practical skills in resolving conflict situations in the field of environmental protection.
