AEN’s youth forum series, called Green Path, was designed to bring together the bright young minds of Armenia with academics, experts and activists in order todissectand discuss the country’s major environmental and social issues.
Our first forum was held in late March 2012 and was on the topic of Mashtots Park. Activists rallied in this park for months protesting against the illegal construction boutiques in the city green space. Hrayr Savzyan, prominent activist and head of Ecoera NGO was our speaker at the forum.
Our last forum was held on April 26, 2012 and was dedicated to the issue of waste. Our guest speaker was Ms Lia Asatryan from Green Lane NGO, a partner organization of AEN. The production of waste, its contents, and what can be done with it were all discussed.
