and the ecological problems specific to the southern Caucasus region. The environmental
education program »Following the Sun,« founded in 2006 by the SunChild
organization, has meanwhile brought together over 1,000 children and youths
in six different regions of Armenia around the themes of nature and the environment.

supports this project for the consular district of Baden-Württemberg.
