What-we-do

The “Young Biologists Association” NGO joined the “Big Jump” international campaign which aims to raise public awareness about water basin protection. This year “Jump Armenia” environmental campaign will be organized in Armenia, too. During the project lectures, discussions and movie screenings will be organized.

On June 7th, at 15:15 at the end of the campaign, all participants will jump into Azat river. This campaign will raise public awareness about water and natural resources’ issues in Armenia, as well as will stimulate international collaboration between young people. Each team will cooperate with a group from another country and will jump together in the same time. This year, our partner is “SUPER SALMONS”  group of young people from Latvia.
