why BEN?  

 

Why BEN

  • Environmental agencies pledge to be open to everyone, but until BEN highlighted the issue, ethnic community environmental participation has not been on their agenda.
  • BEN focuses in working with deprived ethnic groups. Many ethnic communities live in some of the worst environments. Environmental participation can enable them to access the vast resources available in the environmental sector. In the process they may be empowered through gaining essential skills in self-help, self-representation and self-improvement - the effects of which spread into areas of life far beyond environmental involvement.

  • Involving ethnic communities in environmental participation also means bringing forward a vast missing contribution from a significant section of the community to engage in the conservation, protection, and development of the environment.

BEN consciously maintains a dialogue with those it serves. It has forged a working philosophy for involving ethnic communities that is relevant to their needs.
