Public Participation and the Environment

Welcome to the platform Public Participation and the Environment

The platform is a knowledge hub for individuals interested in participatory approaches in environmental topics, including ecosystem services, biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. 

The Public Participation and the Environment Platform presents research conducted by students and researchers from the American University of Armenia and the University of Hohenheim within the GAtES project, along with relevant international information resources. The platform also hosts E-Learning Modules, videos and more. It conveys how ecosystem services concept and PPGIS-based methods can be used for biodiversity conservation and sustainable development.

The platform is produced by the American University of Armenia (AUA) Acopian for the Environment as part of its GATES project, a collaborative 4-year project (2018-2021) between the Center and the University of Hohenheim (UHOH) supported by DAAD, the German Academic Exchange Service, with funds from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
