Presevo - As part of the "Green World" NGO's project "For Sustainable Environment", a training course was conducted for students of the "Skenderbeg" Grammar School in Presevo from November 14 to 16, 2008. The goal of the training was to enable the students for preparing projects and maintaining public relations, which are the skills necessary for obtaining the funds for the projects more easily. The said training was conducted by Redzep Iljazi (SCOPES Program Office Manager) and Armend Aliu (Director of the Office for Economic Development and Entrepreneurship of the Municipalities of Presevo and Bujanovac).

The ten-month project is supported by the US Embassy in Belgrade. The parties responsible for implementing the project are the "Green World'' NGO from Presevo and "Junior Achievement" youth group. As part of the project, another training course is planned to be conducted, which will enable a 30-member group of students ("Junior Achievement") to get informed about various topics related to preservation of the environment.

The "Green World" NGO for protection of the environment, which is aimed at preserving diversity of the environment by means of education, provision of information to the population and by various environment-related activities, was established in Presevo at the beginning of 2005. "Green World"has implemented over ten environmental projects so far.
