Protecting the environment with intelligence

Training Local Activists

Capacity building, TanzaniaEIA passionately believes in sharing our campaigning techniques and experience with grassroots activists in the countries where we work.

For many years, we have provided equipment, taught skills and given networking opportunities to people who want to speak out against the injustices they see around them.
Recent advances in communications technology have meant anyone can quickly record, upload, distribute and promote previously untold stories about key human rights abuses and environmental concerns.

These emotionally engaging stories, when put into the right hands at the right meetings, conferences or press briefing, can bring about change in profound ways.

We carry out this work in many countries, as often as possible, although the key countries where we have had major skills-sharing projects are Indonesia and Tanzania where there have been impressive results. We have also run training workshops in India with groups which campaign to end illegal mining in tiger habitats.
