…On December 14, 2012, the Vorniceni Village Council/NGO Terra1530, Republic of Moldova, approved a decision(nr. 8/16) concerning changing the destination of a land area for the purpose of arranging of a square, this constituting one of the objectives of the Socio-Economic Development Strategy of Vorniceni village. The problem of the protection and sustainable development of forests is inseparable from the problem of country's public health.

Describe the specific community with whom you will be working.

Preparation of the village citizenry, over 5000 people, to make decisions related to environmental problems by involving them in volunteer activities such as the installation of a metallic fence surrounding the square as well as setting up an information panel, dustbins, benches, sidewalks and lamps throughout the plot; Organizing a series of digital photography: the whole community of more than 5000 citizens may be involved in the project.
What kinds of news, stories and other content will be created?
The forestation of an area of 2.65 hectares will constitute our response to the Global Warming phenomenon. The arrangement of the square will become a model of ecological education for the population. The square will be a place where people will rest and spend their leisure time…
What technologies and digital tools do you plan to use in the trainings?
Describe the connections that you or your organization have already established that will contribute to the success of the project.
First, partners such as representatives from the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Moldova, Academy of Science of Republic of Moldova, Institute of Forest Researches and Arrangements, and State Ecological Inspection will be invited. Secondly, an authorization for the arrangement work will be obtained from the Environmental Commission of Experts that will permit the work consistent with existing legal requirements.
How many participants do you think will be involved in your project?
It is an opportunity for more than 5000 inhabitants of Vorniceni village to participate in the project implementation particularly those working abroad that may contribute financially.
There are more and more discussions about ecological education in Moldova today but there is a stringent lack of a real model. The respective square, arranged in Vorniceni with the participation of international experts, may become such a model.
