On November 1-2, 2017 40 schoolchildren from  Yerevan, Vayots Dzor and Syunik regions participated in the eco-camp organised by WWF-Armenia and the United Nations Office in Armenia in Vayots Dzor. This camp was the final stage of the "Me and My Corner of Nature” environmental initiative, launched earlier in spring. The camp participants were the authors of the best works of «Me and My Corner of Nature" photo contest as well as a number of other schoolchildren from the above mentioned regions.

The representatives of the UN Armenia Office presented 17 Sustainable Development Goals through various games, videos and presentations. The Goals were adopted by world leaders at an historic UN Summit in September, 2015. 17 goals are aimed at eliminating poverty in all its forms, addressing a range of social needs and climate change issues.

Then representatives of WWF-Armenia presented Caucasian Leopard Conservation Project, as well as modern field survey techniques, during which participants had the opportunity to see one of the main methods of wildlife observation - photo and camera traps. They learned the principles of their installation and operation.  The participants could also see the Bezoar goats in wildlife. The camp was filled with interactive games, competitions, songs and dances.
