Falkor is constructing and supporting an international network of youth protecting the environment, supporting and developing independent media and active in human rights, anti-racism, pro-tolerance issues and development of civil society in general.
Falkor brings individuals and organizations into contact with each other through exchange projects and information services, with the aim to start and keep up cooperation in projects improving the environmental/social situation both nation-wide in different countries and region-wide throughout entire Europe including Caucasus.
1.To build the fundaments for successful cooperation bringing youth, active in environmental/ human rights organizations and inspired individuals from Europe and Caucasus in contact with each other, forging partnerships between Caucasus and European NGOs. A better mutual understanding between different cultures is the first, necessary step on the way to successful cooperation and implementation of projects.
2.To find new, more effective, strategies to work for protecting the environment, human rights, to foster or be independent media, anti-racism and advertise tolerance, while working and relaxing together, learning from each other in our volunteer-exchange projects, and those offered by other NGOs.
3.To provide a larger audience (not youth only) with accessible, not seen in mainstream media in Europe/Caucasus, news-items covering environmental and human rights protection, anti-racism, tolerance and youth culture. The larger audience reached will increase the attention for (awareness-raising) and impact of (by readers acting in support) the issues published about.
4.To support youth, who are, or want to be more active in protecting the environment, human rights, anti-racism and pro-tolerance issues, who want to be (or to be supporting) independent media together with the bigger audience who is "watching" through the network.
5.To share information about cultural life and activities in other countries (music, literature, films, theatre, small-scale tourism and more… Better known makes better loved?
