Armin's story

Armin, 18 years old, comes from a small town in the northwestern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. He was the Tunza Eco Generation Regional Ambassador from 2016-2017. His ambassadorship resulted in numerous workshops and questionnaires to test and broaden his fellow students' knowledge of environmental topics, as well as the 12 monthly reports that are a testament to his dedication. Armin also coordinated the search of minefields left over from the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, for the 1,735 unknown victims of landmine hazards. As a three-time participant of the European Researchers' Night in Banjaluka, Armin also educated thousands of interested visitors with practical demonstrations about the dangers of tobacco smoke to our health.
