Armenia Tree Project will be featured in the second season of the Architects of Change documentary television series. Episode 18 on Vers une gestion durable des forêts (Toward sustainable management of forests) will be aired on the French-language RDI channel in Canada with plans to release in other countries this year.

Architects of Change traveled to Armenia for footage of ATP’s tree planting and environmental education programs and the segment features a profile of the organization’s executive director Jeff Masarjian. The series is also being released on the web in Canada via the link here.

The Architects of Change series highlights pioneers with innovative solutions to global challenges including poverty, pollution, public health, and climate change. In addition to ATP, Architects of Change has profiled influential individuals including Bill Drayton, Gary Hirshberg, Wangari Maathai, and Muhammad Yunus.
