“Artvironment” is an eight-day international meeting on collaboration of young artists and environmental protection activists. The main question of the meeting is how can we raise people’s awareness on environmental problems, consumerism and trash fields issue with the help of art techniques. Experienced young environmental activists and young artists will gather to share their knowledge and know-hows in the format of peer-to-peer education. The event will take place in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Despite the fact that it is a scientific and industrial center of Siberia with unique nature, hosting many international sports events, it is one of the most polluted cities in Russia, where participants will also work on raising awareness action for local community, uniting art means and environmental knowledge: participants will be divided into teams that will work on their project ideas for local action\activity. During the event participants will visit a local trash field, which will allow them to assess the scale of pollution and get inspired for local activities. That will be followed by a tour at the local recycle factory for participants to get an overview on how recycling infrastructure in Russia works. It is planned to visit a local Siberian eco-settlement, which is supposed to help participants to get to know more about Russian and Siberian culture.

After the meeting there will be follow-up activities in homelands of participants where they are supposed to disseminate information about participation in this event by public speaking / small action.
