ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Most of the protected natural areas from Romania are threatened by irreversible degradation, they are only included in the legislative acts but they are not really managed by any entity.
In this daily context, the media and NGOs notify and report flagrant abuses and violations of the specific environmental legislation, which lead to irreparable degradation of the natural values for which these protected natural areas have been designated.
NGOs such as ACDB and Propark have the obligation to be actively involved in attracting citizens in educational, monitoring and civic activism activities in order to maintain on long-term, the values of natural heritage existing in the region of Moldova and to contribute as much as possible in the fight for reducing climate warming, accentuated in our case by deforestation.
For ACDB, the establishment of the volunteer center is a strategic objective, because volunteering is an important factor in the development of education and training of prospective team members and to increase social solidarity of the target groups that contribute to achieving our mission.
Another important direction of action of ACDB and Propark in this project is the education, empowerment and activation of the general public regarding the necessity of nature conservation and combating climate change. The target group is young people aged 14-35, characterized by the desire for change, citizens are saturated with discussions without visible results on this topic and want concrete actions and immediate involvement.
The implementation period of the project is 36 months, between 05.02.2021 and 04.02.2024
