The full-day session hosted by the NLEN will bring together NLEN members as well as other non-member environmental organisations for a workshop aimed at professional development and networking.
The purpose of the workshop is threefold:
- build the capacity of the participants with respect to proposal writing;
- provide a forum for dialogue between participating organisations and potential funders;
- provide an opportunity for funders to promote their funding programs.
Participant registration fee:
NLEN members: $20.00
[Note: Lunch and refreshment breaks will be provided to all participants and resource people].
Transportation subsidies for participants:
Transportation subsidies will be provided on a first-come first-serve basis exclusively to NLEN members. For those travelling by car: 15 cents/km; or 25 cents/km for the driver if carpooling with 1 or more workshop participant(s). By air: if flying within the Island, the equivalent of 15 cents/km driving mileage rate towards cost of the airline ticket; or 1/2 the cost of the airline ticket if flying from Labrador.
