Alda will be hosting a workshop on practices in the operation of NGOs in terms of transparency ethics and cooperation with business NGOs the Wednesday 29. June, at Veröld – Hús Vigdísar. The workshop is a part of the Lighthouse keepers project. The project is led by the Polish Institute for Human Rights and Business, who is joined by partners from Ukraine: the Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University in Kharkiv and from Iceland: Alda, and the Icelandic Ombudsman for Children. The project will undertake the effort of creating the foundation for a universal standard to be developed that will guide interactions between NGOs and businesses. The aim of the workshop is to discuss lessons gained from the adverts that have been made in Iceland over the last decade or so. We will also discuss the situation NGOs face in Ukraine.

The project benefits from a grant under the Active Citizens Fund – Regional from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, through the EEA Grants.
