Transforming Street Action to Institutional Change: Round Table 3

On the floor, Grigor Janoyan

On January 29, 2013, the Hrayr Maroukhian Foundation with the financial support of Counterpart International and USAID held its third round table for the project, “Transforming Street Action to Institutional Change: Environmental Policy Dialogue” at Ani Plaza Hotel in Yerevan. Speakers and guests focused on 1) Environmental policy recommendations and 2) a manual for activism that can be used not only by environmentalists but all activists.
Taking part in the discussion were environmental activists, NGOs, university professors, experts and government representatives. Gohar Ghandilyan, Grigor Janoyan and David Shintyan presented their research papers and took questions from the participants. The research papers will support on one hand environmental activists and NGOs to form a concrete strategy and decision-making state agencies on the other hand, to include all stakeholders in the environmental decision-making process.
The HMF thanked its partners and all those who took part in the realization of this project.
