  Community Empowerment

GEC believes empowering community is a pivotal element in environmental conservation. They possess a rife of knowledge, talent and creative solutions to environmental challenges. Environmental problems such as deforestation, river pollution, encroachment can be easily minimized or controlled by empowered and engaged communities. Empowered and engaged communities will ensure success of various environmental programmes as they are likely to draw resources and skills creating ownership in addition to undertaking corrective measures independently.

GEC is involved in a number of community empowerment programmes relating to general capacity building, environmental education, information exchange and awareness raising on global environment issues. We have successfully established a number of community based organisations through our projects and environmental education programmes.
