The Eden Centre (Tirana)

The Environmental Center for Development Education & Networking (EDEN) was established in 2003. It is committed to contributing to the democratization of civil society and the sustainable development of the country. It is working in close collaboration with eight environmental NGOs, the Municipality of Tirana, and local communities in Tirana.

EDEN focuses on environmental education, waste management, and local capacity-building, especially in CSOs. Its mission is “to develop a sustainable and healthy environment through building capacities; promoting participatory approaches; offering expertise and services to civil society and government; and lobbying at the national level”.

Amongst other things EDEN organizes training for local authorities, teachers, students, members of local environmental groups and for the community. It also has an Environmental Resource Centre which works primarily with children and young people. It has carried out a number of projects in schools in Tirana and has an 18-strong team of trained 'Nature Guides', mostly university students who are taking degrees in biology, chemistry, biochemistry or environment science.
