Some of our members planted saplings together, pictures of which were posted on official Facebook event page & Instagram. Alongside opened a call for participants for a closed training session.
For the closed session we selected 25 participants on a first hand basis of their responses. After completing the registration procedure we sent an invitation to the applicants to join a Whats App group via which we provided a pre-evaluation form.On the basis of their responses our trainers designed the session outline. Participents received a closed training session on environment related topics (1. Introduction , 2. Climate change 3. Advocacy and challenges 4.Taking Action:what can we do? What we will do after the workshop in local communities). After completing the training we sent them a post evaluation form & assigned them tasks to know the outcome of the sessions.
Plans for evaluation:
For pre-event evaluation,we made a pre-evaluation form which will be circulated in the WhatsApp group chat prior to the event.Here,we will analyse participants’ ideas about environment and climate change related advocacy, views about how to make the session better.
For post-event evaluation,we made a post-evaluation form and circulate in the same WhatsApp group chat.We will be assessing their current knowledge about climate change and environment related advocacy and what they intend to do with the skills achieved.
