NEED Expansion and Training Programs for 2013
The Network for Environment and Economic Development Burma is excited to announce two new training programs for 2013! We have been very busy planning and we are expanding our programs into Burma/Myanmar for the first time. NEED will have two different training programs in 2013.
Our Model Farm Initiative in Chiang Mai will be hosting a shorter, three month long academic training focusing on Land, Law and Economics (LLET). This training will be very challenging and we have designed it to prepare participants to work in the fast changing areas of Land Rights, Foreign Direct Investment, Global Economics, Land Law, and Community Development in Burma/Myanmar. After completing this course, the participants will be encouraged to work to promote sustainable economic and community based growth in their areas. NEED is proud to offer this training two times in 2013. The first training will be June to August and the second will be October to December. Each training will have 16 participants who must be highly qualified and have excellent English skills.
NEED is proud to announce our first Sustainable Agriculture Training program in Burma/Myanmar! This program will be based in our new Model Eco Village in Hmawbi Township, Yangon Division. This amazing opportunity will be focused on youth empowerment and agricultural skills. We will be accepting 30 youth (18-25) to participant in a 10 month long sustainable agriculture training. This training program will focus on Organic Agriculture, Environment, Renewable Energy, Mud Brick Building, Farm Design, Seed Saving, Community Development, Sustainable Livelihoods and English. Participants will graduate with the skills they need to transform their communities and help grow the sustainable agriculture movement in Burma/Myanmar.
