The Sunchild 6th International Environmental Festival kicks off in Yerevan
The program of SunChild International Environmental Festival 2016 is rich and symbolic as it marks the 10th anniversary of partnership between SunChild Eco Clubs and FPWC-VivaCell- MTS. This year the festival also features a new project - the Green Mobility. Each year the festival strives to address important environmental issues. The festival program includes screenings of wildlife and environmental films from all over the world, workshops, exhibitions, media campaigns and other events designed to raise awareness about the growing global challenge of nature conservation. This year the festival will feature 38 films from around the world in competition and non-competition programs. “For ten years now we join efforts in striving to shape environmental way of thinking and culture especially among the younger generation. Merciless, consumerist attitude and carelessness is the boomerang thrown at the humanity, which may one day return as a disaster. To avoid it, we should first shun making the deliberate mistake of destroying the nature, polluting it and creating an atmosphere of indifference. We manage to achieve our goals step by step by events like this. I am confident the younger generation is more committed in this matter,” said VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian. The grand opening ceremony of the SunChild 6-th International Environmental Festival will take place on November 11, 18:00, in “Moscow” Cinema Blue Hall. Before the opening ceremony, the French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s exhibition titled “Sustainable development: why?” will be presented at 17:00 in the Moscow Cinema 2-nd floor lobby. The festival’s opening ceremony will be followed by the exclusive screening of “Racing Extinction”, a film from the Oscar-winner director of “The Cove” Louie Psihoyo. Film screenings and discussions, exhibitions and workshops will be held in AEON, Mass Media Center, AGBU, TUMO, Alliance Française, Article 3 Club, Ilik Handmade crafts store and cafe. The festival has been organized owing to the support of FPWC General Partner VivaCell-MTS. Admission to the events is free.
