The EU-funded Forest Law Enforcement and Governance Programme, FLEG II, has started a new forestry programme for secondary schools in the southern Armenian region of Syunik. The course covers topics related to the protection and value of forest resources, and the role of biodiversity. In addition to in-class learning, pupils will also participate in outdoor activities such as tree planting, field trips and forest cleaning events.
 
The EUR 9 million FLEG II programme aims to improve forest law enforcement in seven countries including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine. It carries out pilot projects and addresses forest fire and climate issues, building upon the achievements of its predecessor, the FLEG I programme.
