The economic reforms, launched in the RA, as well the development of cooperation with the international organizations, occupied in this sphere, called to life the establishment of the environmental policy and the ecological education is its integral part. This policy, which is still in the process of formation, states on secure and healthy environment for coming generations.

Finally, the institute of social opinion will be formed.
