On August 7, at 14:00, the Media Center held an online public discussion on the topic of "Yerevan․ Territory without Air Where Trees Disturb the Concrete".

Specialists and environmentalists warn that the capital of Armenia, Yerevan, is in the semi-desert zone. The city is in urgent need of large-scale landscaping and revision of construction rules.

The attitude of the city authorities, however, continues to be consumerist. Preference is given to concrete at the expense of trees. An example can serve the trees cut down in Mashtots Park these days.    

What do the representatives and specialists of Yerevan Council of Elders offer? How to save Yerevan from desertification?

The speakers were: 

Davit Khazhakyan, member of "Luys" bloc of Yerevan Council of Elders,

Hripsime Arakelyan, Secretary of the Prosperous Armenia faction of the Yerevan Council of Elders,

Grigor Yeritsyan, member of the "My Step" faction of the Yerevan Council of Elders

Merine Sargsyan, Senior Researcher, Institute of Botany, National Academy of Sciences, Academy of Sciences after Takhtajyan, Candidate of Biological Sciences

Lilit Khachatryan, ecologist-botanist, employee of the Institute of Botany of NAS RA
Kristina Vardanyan, Deputy Director of "Landscaping and Environmental Protection", PhD, Associate Professor
