Why? Prevent Ecological Disaster

At the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in 2015, the resolution "Let's transform our world" by 2030 was adopted, with the global program environmental education and environmental education acquired particular importance.

Consumerism in relation to the environment, indifference to global environmental problems are a consequence of a low level of ecological culture or its complete absence.

Environmental education and environmental upbringing in the Republic of Armenia is at a very low level or, more precisely, almost nonexistent, especially among the population of the Tavush region, especially among the communities adjacent to forests, which have made forests their main source of income.

This is evidenced by numerous cases of violation of the protection regime of the "Dilijan National Park", numerous criminal cases initiated.
It is a shame that they set an example to their children with their consumerist attitude to nature and thus continue to destroy nature for generations without realizing that this will ultimately lead to an environmental disaster.

To prevent an ecological disaster, to create an ecological culture among the younger generation, our organization decided to create an extra-curricular educational platform - "Green Camp".

Who are we?
The public organization "Contribution to Women and Children" has been operating in the Tavush region since 2004, its office is located in Dilijan. It is composed of 24 members, of which 5 are teachers, 4 doctors, 4 nurses, 1 pharmacist, 1 dental technician, 1 lawyer, 1 accountant, 1 beekeeper, 1 driver, 5 are apprentices. People of these different professions have one common idea - to contribute to the prevention of environmental disasters, which are inevitable if deforestation in the Tavush region continues at such a pace.

What do we want?
We want to change the consumer attitude of people to nature, create a new set of values based on ecological culture, so that we can live in harmony with nature in our little corner of this great God-given world.

For what purpose
To form an ecological culture based on the value system of schoolchildren in the Tavush region through non-formal education in the Green Camp out-of-school educational center in order to change their consumer attitude towards respect for nature.

How we are going to do this?
1. Create an out-of-school education center "Green Camp".
1․1 ․ Dilijan National Park provided us with 5,000 square meters of forests for 60 years to create an eco-camp.
1․2 ․ Raise $100,000 through crowdfunding to build 10 Eco Camp Cottages.
1․3 ․ Carry out all the preparatory work through the volunteer work of members of the organization.

2 ․ Organize non-formal education.
2․1 ․ Provide theoretical knowledge on environmental protection: waste management, disaster management, sustainable agriculture, food production, clean energy, energy efficiency.
2․2 ․ Organize discussions on global environmental issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss, water pollution, air pollution, and more.
2․3 ․ Provide practical knowledge by planting trees and participating in cleaning up the environment.
2․4 ․ Provide theoretical knowledge and practical skills of beekeeping as an alternative means of income for the family and caution to consider the forest as a source of income. .
2․5 ․ Organize educational excursions along the hiking trails of the Dilijan National Park, while doing work on cleaning, searching for felled trees, planting trees in their place.
3 ․ Create a Green Camp Facebook page.
3․1 ․ Spread information about the Green Camp.
3․2 ․ Register all participants.
3․3 ․ Publish information about all events.
3․4 ․ Videos of our courses - post them via video tutorials.

Activities of the Green Camp
Eco-camp will work during the spring, summer and autumn schoolchildren holidays, which are 14 weeks, that is, every year we will have 14 groups of participants, each group of 20 people. Each group will be accommodated for a week at the Green Camp free of charge and receive eco-education and eco-education. Age inclusion: 12-17 years old, equal gender inclusion: 10 girls 10 boys, each group will be formed from the school of one community together with the leader of their squad. Thus, 280 students a year will receive eco-education and eco-upbringing in our camp, transforming its value system. The detailed schedule will be published on the Green Camp Facebook page.
