Established in 2016, Keep it Green is based in the town of Obilic, a centre for Kosovo’s coal industry and one of the most polluted towns in Europe. Their objective is to engage people to become active citizens in an area where civic engagement is extremely low. EED core support is allowing them to organise awareness camps and door-to-door activities to encourage the community to express their concerns. This is allowing them to expand their reach and increase their capacity as a grassroots activist organisation.
