LGS activities provide participants with: (a) practical skills to engage with those around them and their natural environment in a positive way; (b) knowledge to lead their country in an ethically and environmentally responsible manner; and, (c) wisdom to understand the importance of respectful human resource and environmental management to the future of Timor-Leste and the world.
LGS has three types of programs. All provide practical skills and promote experiential learning in: sustainable development, organic farming, renewable/solar energy, environmental conservation and recycling. LGS also leads nature-based outdoor activities in Maubisse.
LGV is currently exploring partnerships with the Timorese government to implement the LGS model across the country.
Our programs include:
Green Weekend (2-day program)
Green Camp (3-day overnight program)
Green Tours (international/national study tours)
In order to complement its three main programmes, LGS, with the support of local partners and volunteers, also leads other activities.
LGS, having established itself as an important organization that unites the Maubisse community, also hosts and coordinates community meetings, classes and projects that bring the local people together to promote environmental activities and sustainable development initiatives.
These activities include media training, workshops, and weekend English classes.
