Workshop Program, which will be held from in April and October 2007 in
Armenia.
The first SunChild environmental festival is going to be a meeting
place for environmental key-players, organizations and individuals, film
makers, and possibly, artists. It could also become a platform for
forming of ?environmental thoughts? through open disputes, discussions,
conferences, workshops and training.

Our team is mainly engaged with the organization of the workshops and
seminars during the festival in October 6-10, 2007. We plan to conduct the
Workshop Program in the following format:

?	Workshop on Advocacy Coalition building Networking on particularly
environmental issues (duration 1 day) with presentation of practical
tools, success stories, preparing action plans for future activities in
the region; panel discussions and invited speakers,
?	?Exhibition of advocacy tools? for public participation in
environmental decision-making in several rooms to show the advocacy
campaigns, and successful tools, stories etc.
?	?Deconstructing the concrete? artists, film-makers, writers,
architects and public activists are coming together to learn how we can
change the environment: European experience, contemporary approaches to
public issues.
?	?Eco- tourism exhibition?, the aim of which is the promotion of local
communities projects on Ecotourism, presentation of tour- agencies?
products, presentation of international projects on eco tourism
implemented in the region, publication of booklets with based on this
exhibition.
?	?Sustainable tourism??, Central topics: What is sustainable tourism? How
to cooperate in sustainable tourism?  This workshop will be give the
difference between "ecotourism" and "sustainable tourism";
will introduce the "Global Convention on Biological Diversity" and its
touristical implications Potentialities of cooperation in sustainable
tourism (e.g. agriculture ->
catering trade -> accomodation) .  There will be a final discussion on
Sustainable tourism in Armenia? Prospects, potential, obstacles.



We hope this will encourage public participation in environmental
decision-making and assist in the solution of the most acute
environmental problems in the region and this would be possible to
achieve first of all by establishing required contacts, maintaining
information databases, dissemination of information to all concerned
and other communication efforts.
