Belarus-Danish NGO Cooperation Project

Activities in 2003-04:
In 2003-04, a national Sustainable Energy Plan was developed for Belarus, based on experience with sustainable energy solutions in Western Europe as well as on INFORSE’s experience with the Vision 2050 strategy for phase-out of fossil and nuclear energy until 2050.

The activities in 2003-04, included publishing the Green News newsletter, and presentations of the proposals, including dialogues with the official energy planners.

The project "Energy Dialogues: Open the Door for Alternative Energy Solutions in Belarus" in 2003-04 was supported by the Danish Open Air Council, Small Project Fund. The project was managed by INFORSE-Europe and Belaya Rus in Belarus.

Activities in 2000-2001:

In 2000-2001, the Belarus youth environmental movement “Belaja Rus” organised campaigns for
- energy efficiency, renewable energy
- waste separation, and
- public participation in environmental decision-making.

In the waste campaign and the energy campaign in Minsk, young people including pupils were invited to discussions of environmental problems of waste and energy in Belarus, and of what people can do themselves to reduce the problems.

In an environmental awareness bus tour, volunteers from Belaja Rus visited 13 schools around Belarus, introducing the campaigns.

The campaigns are supported by leaflets on energy efficiency, waste, and public participation in Russian, made by “Belaja Rus”.

In addition, the organisation produced teacher-guides, along with the newsletter “Zelenie Novosti” for young people and teachers in Belarus.
