Environment and Armenian YEAs

Young European Ambassadors from Armenia got together with Armavir Development Centre to celebrate World Environment Day with a tree planting activity with the ‘Sunrise Children’s Support Centre’․ YEAs worked with the local children from the Children’s Support Centre to plant 20 new trees in Armavir. The kids also learned how to sort waste, what is recycling, how to reduce water consumption and about healthy food․ You can have a look at what they got up to here.

In 2019, pupils and teachers from communities around Lake Sevan in Armenia, together with the country’s Young European Ambassadors, took the lead in a clean-up event to mark the Lake Sevan Protection Day. As a result, 500 metres of beaches on the Sevan Lake were cleaned, and about 80 bags full of waste were removed. The event also served as an occasion to highlight the EU’s support in the development of good water management in Armenia in frames of the EU Water Initiative Plus. Armenian YEAs participated in the clean-up activity for the first time. They helped with the organisation of the event and also presented their work in the country. Earlier in 2019, Armenian YEAs also held an informative training with young people in Yerevan on water pollution and wasting water, providing participants with tips on how to save water with simplest steps in everyday life.

In 2020, taken the situation with COVID-19 restrictions, Armenian YEAs took over the EU NEIGHBOURS east Instagram stories to to show the influence of COVID-19 on the environment. They talked how used medical masks, gloves and other protective measures against COVID-19 can pollute the environment and spread the infection. YEAs shared some useful tips to their followers how to minimise waste in a proper way.  Another Instagram takeover by Armenian YEAs aimed at celebrating World Water Day and sharing their tips on how to save water in our everyday routine. It also featured the EU Water Initiative Plus and its activities in Armenia.
