Small grants for civil society organisations, reinforcement of sports infrastructures throughout the country and a glance on how to improve recycling: these are among the main issues covered by the latest newsletter of the EU-funded Civil Initiatives Libya (CIL).
The new digital edition of the publication is the output of a 10-day training on magazine design supported by the Libyan authorities for the promotion of the press, and followed by representatives of Civil Society Organisations and the media.
In the Newsletter – which is in its 3rd year and is financially supported by the European Union – different topics of interest to Civil Society are usually dealt with, from culture to human rights.
The purpose of the publication is to shed light on civil initiatives throughout Libya and to focus on positive aspects of the transition. For example, in this edition there is a special focus on sport infrastructures: Libyan stadiums could well be ready to host the African Championship in 2017, it says.
Civil Initiatives Libya (CIL) is a two year project, funded by the European Union and implemented by a consortium of international NGOs: ACTED, CESVI and PIN. The project aims to strengthen the capacity of emerging civil society organisations (CSOs), working with Libyan and European CSOs and Institutions to help build a vibrant, active and independent civil society in Libya.
