Launched in the early 2000s, Մաքուր Երևան (Clean Yerevan) was part of a wave of citizens’ initiatives that revived public awareness about pollution, green spaces, and the environment.

The initiative was founded by young people concerned that Yerevan’s public had become indifferent to the city’s conditions. The Foundation supported their activities throughout 2002-2005, during which the number of volunteers cleaning areas around museums, parks and galleries rose from 15 to 550.
