The Festival screens wildlife and environmental films from all over the world and hosts workshops, exhibitions and media campaigns designed to foster a culture of environmental stewardship. During the 9 years of the festival’s existence, more than 300 films from 150 countries around the world have been screened. The SunChild International Environmental Festival is the first and only of its kind in the South Caucasus region.
The Festival takes place in autumn, but it also hosts screenings and workshops year round throughout Armenia for youth. This provides a space for youth to understand and engage environmental issues in order to find local solutions.
SunChild International Environmental Festival has been organized annually since 2007 by the Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC).
