CREATED ANOTHER GREEN ZONE IN MALATSIA SEBASTIA COMMUNITY: THE ITALIAN EMBASSY TO INAUGURATE THE FIRST IN THE HISTORY OF ARMENIA ‘ITALIAN-ARMENIAN MEETING POINT PARK’
Over the past three years, the Embassy of Italy in Armenia and the Armenia Tree Project (ATP) environmental organization have been successfully collaborating on the creation of a unique ‘Italian Armenia Meeting Point Park’. This new green zone is located in the southwest district of Malatsia-Sebastia Community site and occupies a 1,000 square meter territory. Since 2001 three tree plantings have been initiated and held at this area by the Italian Embassy together with ATP. More than total 200 fruit and decorative trees survived due to the high 90 % survival rate ATP achieves today. Above all, the ‘newborn’ park will supply the Malatsia-Sebastia Community residents with oxygen, shade, noise reduction and beautiful blossoming of trees in springtime. The Italian Embassy in Armenia and ATP organized and held similar tree plantings also in 2001, 2002 and the last one in 2004, which resulted in the establishment of the first in the history of Armenia ‘Italian Armenian Meeting Point Park’.
The Inauguration ceremony will take place on December 1, 2004. The Ambassador of Italy to Armenia, Marco Clemente, and Mrs.Clemente are to open this noteworthy event by planting a tree as a symbolization of friendly and flourishing relationships between these two countries - Italy and Armenia. There’s a hope that this initiation undertaken with such an enthusiasm and love will play a big role in both, the political and environmental life in Armenia.
The inauguration ceremony is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
Transportation for Mass Media is provided.
