Our Projects

PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS 2012-2013:

Typical trash “dump” in Armenia.

** Integrated Waste Management Project: Environmental education, capacity building, and development of the country’s first modern landfill together with Armenian partner NGOs.  Armenia currently lacks a waste management system that adheres to any sanitary standard. At the heart of the IWMP is an integrated picking and sorting program for recyclable materials–providing jobs for the local community–and an environmental education component that teaches the core environmental tenets of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.

** Advocacy and outreach in Armenia and the Diaspora to improve local community access to public information, participation, and environmental justice in Armenia

** Policy evaluation and assessment

** Public awareness raising and environmental action events in several Diasporan communities, including San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Canada

** Strategy resource for local environmental activists
