The FLEG ll (ENPI East) Program plans to carry out a one-week summer camp for the most distinguished activists of the young foresters' movement as in Azerbaijan as well as in six participating countries. The conduction of the summer camp is a part of the regional working plan of the Program and is foreseen to be held in Gakh district of Azerbaijan. Tentative dates for the conduction of the summer camp is a beginning of August 2015 (the program of the event is attached).
Initiated and promoted by the FLEG the young foresters' movement has been successfully restored in Azerbaijan during the first phase of the Program. Gaining more popularity among the schoolchildren the movement is being widely supported by the state forestry and education sectors. In a short period, the movement has considerably expanded at the country level and actively collaborates and cooperates with the forest sector and local communities in the regions.
The main goal of the summer camp is to strengthen the cooperation, support possible interactions and joint initiatives by the young foresters.
The program of the summer camp envisages interesting meetings, excursions, field trips and research as well as leisure-time of the participants.
We appeal to coordinators from each of the participating countries of the Program to nominate one representative - member of the young foresters' movement aged 13-18 with an adult supervisor or a parent (accompanying person). The program reimburses all transportation costs as well as covers meals and accommodation in the host country for the two representatives from each country. The transportations costs of the participants and accompanying persons to Azerbaijan (Baku or Ganja) will be covered through the local representatives of the World Bank in these countries. An important prerequisite is the knowledge of Russian or English and possession of the appropriate documents, which are necessary to travel to a foreign country (Azerbaijan). The prospective participants do not need visas to enter Azerbaijan. An invitation letter will be provided upon completion of the final list of the participants.
