Overall objective is to support and enable freedom of public expression of opinions, attitudes and criticism by environmental civil society and environmental defenders fully protected by relevant laws and guaranteed human rights.


Specific objectives are:

  • To plan and conduct a wide-range public awareness campaign on the negative impact of the presently increasing pressure on environmental activists and CSOs;
  • To raise individual and organizational capacities of the activists and CSOs in dealing with the pressure and protecting their human rights/freedom of expression;
  • To initiate dialogue and cooperation mechanisms amongst the governmental and civil society sector on the issues of public participation in environmental decision making.
