On the concept of the project work

Principles for project development processes 

based on partnership for ENEA 

consist of the following model approaches:

Public welfare approach and Gender Justice

Support of organisations (NGOs, administrations, companies, etc.) for self-organisation in civil society development for the realisation of interests oriented towards the common good as well as for the creation of opportunity and participation equality between the genders.

Participation-oriented approach 

Perceive the organisation as an active partner - the responsibility of the members of the organisation can only be achieved if they are all involved in the necessary development processes. This involves the ability of both the groups as a whole and all group members to organise themselves, as well as the use of the potential of all organisational members at all organisational levels.

Integrated approach

Everything from a single source - interlocking of qualification and counselling, moderation, support, leadership, learning transfer and evaluation in the entire transformation process of the organisation with the participation of all organisational members.

Holistic approach 

The organisation or the company as a learning organisation - connection of individual and organisational learning processes, i.e. there must be a transfer from the individual learning processes into the knowledge base of the organisation. Organizational learning must therefore be more than the sum of individual learning.

Sustainable approach - Environment and society

Achieving permanent solutions and concepts and "autonomy" as the goal of the development process - enabling the organisation to autonomously mobilise its potential for change, creating relative independence from external experts.

A sustainable social solution can only exist in an intact environment and nature. For this reason, support is given above all to organisations that make a contribution to the conservation of nature and biodiversity as well as to environmental and climate protection.

Community approach

Creating synergies through cooperation - new structures arise from the perception of internal and external cooperation, with other groups in the same place or region, with similar objectives or with other supportive approaches.

Together with all cooperation partners, ENEA pursues an approach that sees project development as an open, joint learning process committed to the principle of sustainability and gender equality. In this respect, learning - sustainability - gender justice are at the forefront as models that are both individually and organisationally significant. 

All these approaches are summarized in the mission statement "Learning Organization", which ENEA seeks to achieve in its projects.

Learning Organisation

The learning process takes place at two interlinked levels - at a strategic or structural level and at an operational, goal-oriented level. The "Learning Organization" is the structural (and strategical) prerequisite for effectively achieving its goals, e.g. in terms of nature, environment and climate protection, at the operational level with regard to relevant target groups.

ENEA with cooperation partners supports groups, NGOs, among other things, through consulting - moderation - networking.

The aim is to change the awareness of the entire organisation with all its members at all levels. Success criteria are the training and coaching of "change agents", "multipliers" and "champions" in the organisations as drivers of the mission statement "learning organisation".

As a "learning organisation", each organisation becomes itself to a certain extent a training provider who maintains its innovative capacity through the integration of learning and working with the help of internal learning and innovation consultants.    

Sustainable Development Goals

With an emphasis on the role of learning and education, ENEA is pursuing Objective 4 in particular and, beyond that, in particularly Objectives 16 and 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
