Support to solicit local partnerships and funds

Youth Leadership Team states in its Plan of Action 2008-2009 that it aims to create strategic partnerships with other organizations and thus secure funds and resources necessary to carry out the Earth Charter youth activities.

In order to realize these objectives it has been created two supporting documents for the youth in Earth Charter Initiative to solicit funds for their local activities:

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUNDING AND PARTNERSHIP PROPOSALS-document gives short guidelines how to start when looking for funds and partnerships for small projects.
ECYG PROJECT PROPOSAL TEMPLATE gives a structure for the project proposal writing.

With this support the Earth Charter Youth Groups and other youth activists are encouraged to start to look for partnerships within their own regions. If feedback is needed during the proposal writing, the draft may be sent to the local Youth Leadership Team representative or to the International Youth Facilitator at youthcoordinator [@] earthcharter.org .
