Public clean-up campaign at “Sevan” national park
“Young Biologists Association” NGO has organized a public clean-up campaign within the framework of “Earth day” worldwide environmental campaign in “Sevan” national park on April 22.
During the clean-up campaign seminars were organized about code of conduct in natural environment and alternative ways of trash recycling.
Earth day is coordinated by Earth Day Network. Since 2010, the Young Biologists Association NGO is partner of the network in Armenia.
The first time Earth Day was celebrated at 1970. The mission of the Earth Day is to raise the public awareness about environment, organize different environmental actions and to advocate for solutions for global environmental issues (e.g. climate change etc.).
