Sustainable development as an idea of development which meets current needs and also takes into account needs of future generations is one of the key principles being managed by the organisation Forum MNE. Forum MNE promotes the contribution to the concept of sustainable development and social responsibility through numerous actions which advocate the participation of citizens on a voluntary basis and the contribution to the society through different segments of social engagement. Forum MNE works on development of awareness of individuals and group of consequences of decisions and behaviour in social and natural environment.
