Biopolis – Sustainable Urban Development 2011

I really liked this course because the material contains a lot of ideas about how to make a city or a building more environmentally friendly. In my opinion, this question is very important for our Republic. In my primary work activities, I can apply this knowledge to such programs as “Ecocampus – environmental education building of the future,” especially the sections on Biopolis – restoring nature and culture to the city, water and waste management, economy and capacity building, urban health and accessibility, and the green economy. So I think that this course greatly enriched my knowledge and inspired new ideas.

This course has helped me expand my knowledge, learn new skills and work with better results. Thank you for the opportunity to gain new knowledge and enhanced capacity. Evgeniia Shvartsman, PR Specialist, Civil Society Support Centre, Kyrgyzstan

Food, Agriculture and the Environment 2011-2013

The materials and information provided in the course modules are very understandable, interesting and useful. They helped and facilitated my knowledge in environmental problems and challenges, and the understanding of their meaning. I used these materials to involve volunteers in environmental issues by teaching and assisting them. Zhanyl Mamunkulova, Program Assistant, Public Fund DCCA, Kyrgyz Republic

This course is very useful for me and my work performance. In my work I implemented some materials, for example: Biotechnology – benefits and dangers, land use, soil quality and water in agriculture, Agricultural waste management and Food security, Rural development and environmental sustainability – directions for the future. These materials I used in carrying out some lessons for school children, workshops for teachers, and meetings of an informal network of environmental organizations in Kyrgyzstan on climate change in Kyrgyzstan. And I am sure that I could also use the other topics in my future activities. Personally, I really liked the material on agricultural lands and urban agriculture and on agriculture and the environment.

Green Salary 2010-2011

I really liked this course because the materials contain a lot of ideas about how to create jobs for environmental protection. In my opinion, this question is very important for our republic. In my primary work activities I can apply this knowledge in such programs as “Ecocampus – environmental education building of the future” (topics include Energy efficient buildings – less waste more jobs, Greening the built environment and promoting zero emissions cities, Green employment in the transport sector, Working for cleaner environments and Esthetics and the environment and the green economy). The projects are implemented by the “AKMENA” Kyrgyzstan Public Association of which I am also a member. So I think that this course greatly enriched my knowledge and inspired new ideas. Elena Shilonosova, Republican Children’s and Young Centre of Ecology, Local History and Tourism, Department of Education, Kyrgyz Republic

The most important aspect for me is that this course describes a lot of good ideas that nobody uses in my country and I had never heard about. I really liked what I read here and really want to put it to practice. Thanks a lot for giving me such a good opportunity to improve my knowledge. I will try to use the acquired knowledge for the benefit of society. Evgeniia Shvartsman, PR Specialist, Civil Society Support Centre, Kyrgyzstan

Sustainable Forest Protection and Management 2011-2013

This course is very useful for me and my work performance. In my work I implemented some of the material, for example, the forest environment, principles of sustainable forest management, challenges and emerging issues, forest health, etc. I used this information in carrying out some lessons for school children, workshops for teachers, and meetings of an informal network of environmental organizations on climate change in Kyrgyzstan. And I am sure that I can also use the other topics in my future activity. I really liked the material on agricultural lands and urban agriculture, and agriculture and the environment.
