Exhibition “Me and My Corner of Nature” was opened in Lovers’ Park
The exhibition includes photos sent by schoolchildren from different regions of Armenia within the educational campaign “Me and my corner of nature”. Children are depicted in the photos in their favorite corners of nature. Photos by WWF Armenia’s environmental specialist Alexander Malkhasyan depicting some endangered species that are included in the Red book of Armenia are also exhibited. On June 7-14, the photos will be exhibited in UN House Armenia.
The main purpose of the educational campaign “Me and my corner of nature” is to raise awareness among children about environmental goals of sustainable development as well as about a number of endangered species in Armenia among which are the Caucasian leopard, Bezoar goat and Armenian mouflon. The authors of the best three photos will receive symbolic gifts, and certificates will be granted to all participants. In the second phase of the campaign the selected participants are expected to present their proposals addressing an environmental issue in their respective communities.
The authors of the best proposals will participate in an environmental field camp in autumn.
