Vardenis Environmental Education Initiative
On October 21-22, AEN, in cooperation with “Graduate Association of Yerevan State Linguistic University” NGO and “Ayrudzy” NGO launched the “Vardenis Environmental Education Initiative” (VEEI) that would help to educate people in communities of Vardenis sub-region, Gegharkuniq Marz, about the health effects and environmental damage resulting from unsanitary waste management practices through environmental and waste management education.
Within the framework of VEEI AEN conducted two Training of Teachers (ToT) in Tsakhkadzor. From the different communities in Vardenis sub-region, 16 teachers participated in the ToTs. The participating teachers were selected based on their readiness to raise environmental awareness and promote environmental education in their communities.
The project was completed in May 2014.
