Our Environmental Education Approach
In Armenia, changing behavior and attitudes toward the environment begins with the School Teacher as the gateway, then makes its way outside the classroom through projects that change the entire community.
Eco-Clubs and Camps
The most serious students will give birth to Eco-Clubs that will continue launching projects in their communities
ATP initiated teacher training in 2005 based upon the “Plant an Idea, Plant a Tree” teacher’s manual. ATP has witnessed increasing evidence that the teacher is a major catalyst in changing attitudes and behaviors, and strengthening a community’s capacity for growth.
Capacity Building and Community Strengthening
Student-led environmental projects help the school and community become more effective at achieving environmental goals.
