Beyond Our Backyards (BoB) is an European project aiming at capacity building of actors of local agroecological initiatives (permaculture, community supported agriculture, transition initiatives, urban agriculture, among others) to study and engage in large scale political issues and processes which impact the local agroecological initiatives (e.g. seed policies, common agricultural policy, property related laws), and in the agro-ecological practices affecting these major political issues (e.g. seed exchanges, cultural practices, solidarity networks, political mobilizations). For this purpose the project brings together actors from three distinct spheres of action: academics, political activists and the developers of local agroecological initiatives.
In Armenia, among the social initiatives, huge attention is paid to actions aimed at environmental protection and preservation of green spaces, actions devoted to the protection of areas such as Teghut, Kadjaran, Hrazdan, Trchkan or Alaverdi. Many activist groups recently formed are fighting for the preservation of Armenian nature and picturesque places that are expected to be used for other purposes by the Government and other organizations.

Before starting my EVS project ‘Volunteers in Parks International' in Germany, I was working in Romania for 6 years in the Regional Agency for Environmental Protection in the region I live. But I felt the need to gain more scientific experience from experts in the area I work in and so I thought I would like to have this experience within an EVS project.
