Experts Teach the Sakhalin Indigenous Minorities Representatives the Basics of Project Management

From 9 till 17 March the invited experts explain to the representatives of the Sakhalin Indigenous Minorities and everyone interested the foundations of project management.

A few Sakhalin districts where local indigenous minorities have their traditional habitat host a series of learning workshops on the unity of the Russian nation with the participation of specialists from the Moscow Resource Centre for National Relations.

The workshops were initiated by coordinating bodies for The Sakhalin Indigenous Minorities Development Plan (hereinafter SIMDP) and supported by Sakhalin Energy.

The workshops are run by two speakers - Irina Galanova, member of the Bureau of the Council and Deputy Chairperson of the Council of the Assembly of Peoples of Russia,  and Anastasia Moskvina, expert of the Centre for Development of Non-Profit Sector (Saint-Petersburg)  and NRU HSE Centre for Social Entrepreneurship and Social Innovations (Moscow).

The events are run in two formats: one-day and two-day workshops. As part of the events SIM representatives and all interested in the topic have an opportunity to get the basics of project development, learn about the methods of identifying social problems, determining the target audience and project relevance, identifying its goals and objectives. The invited specialists reveal the intricacies of project management, explaining how to identify project budget, which activities to include and how to evaluate economic benefit.

As noted by the workshop attendees, they need to be highly competitive to receive financing for their projects implemented under the SIMDP. These workshops run by experienced trainers provide a great opportunity to receive a consultation on the projects and make required adjustments to increase the chance of the project’s success.

“I really like the workshop; the trainer is such an interesting person! We have been generating new ideas and it seems like we can present our projects at the regional level.  I have a real project which I’d like to present to our expert for review and evaluation.  It was interesting to learn about the modern trends in ethno-tourism,” told Alexey Chinkov, one of the participants of the workshop held in Nekrasovka. 

The workshops were run in Nekrasovka, Val, Poronaisk and Smirnykh.  From 13 till 14 March the workshop will take place in Nogliki (at 60 Sovetskaya Str., Nogliki Municipal Local History Museum, at 11 AM), on 14 March in the Viakhtu library (at 3 Pochtovaya Str., at 12 PM), on 15 March in the Chir-Unvd Centre for Culture (7 Sovetskaya Str., at 11 AM).
