The program will offer trainings for the NGOs’ representatives - future intersectoral cooperation specialists and animators, in the field of CSR and building cross-sector partnerships. It will also offer counseling of selected NGOs and companies interested in establishing cooperation and stimulate creation of partnerships. This project will be implemented in Silesia region of Poland.
