“The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.” Aristotle

As the saying goes – "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." The energy of a group is more than the aggregated energy of its individual members. And this is exactly what the “My Green Mongolia” initiative is all about.

Many projects and organizations already support related efforts. International projects such as GIZ SPACES or UNDP ENSURE have advised the Ministry of Environment and Tourism on legal frameworks, policies and management of protected area administrations, large-scale landscape protection, eco-friendly and community-based tourism, sustainable management of forests and natural resources, etc. These projects have also invested considerably in both EEC media and educational measures and materials.

International and national NGOs such as WCS, TNC, WWF, the Mongolian Ecological Center or Nomadic Nature Conservation as well as academic and research organizations, e.g. the Environmental Education Center at National University or the Freshwater Center have for many years run individual campaigns, produced media or conducted training in relation with endangered species, biodiversity, forest or landscape conservation with a wide variety of local target audiences.

Coordinated by the Department of Protected Area Management of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET-DPAM), many protected area administrations contribute to the above mentioned efforts as communication & education officers often organize outdoor environmental education activities in cooperation with green schools, eco-clubs or their own information centers.

And it is under the umbrella of the “My Green Mongolia” initiative that all these organizations come together to streamline their efforts to co-create innovative EEC media and materials, trainings and curricula.
