"EcoLur" presents "New Development Opportunities for Communities" video made within the framework of "Social and Ecological Responsibility" project. Representatives of the local self-government bodies and local NGOs, the active population and the project experts speak about the prospects, opportunities and expectations for the implementation of the socio-ecological policy developed during the project.
The film emphasizes the active participation of the residents in the process of developing the socio-ecological policy and that of the local self-government bodies, which is the main guarantee for their investment in the five-year policy development programs. There is an opportunity to reduce the existing socio-environmental risks in the communities through policies, to bring the relations with business and the Government to a new level.
The film's possible conclusion is that the policy will enable the development of alternative business sectors, mitigate or eliminate the negative impact, and protect the socio-environmental rights of communities.
