Mid March 2010: cold and gray day outside, but joyful and green on the inside 🙂 we held one of our ecology workshops at Tandarica Foundation, here in Cluj-Napoca. At two kindergarten classes, with kids between 3 and a half years old, up to 6.

They were wonderful!

Not only did we learn, together, the whys and hows of ecology and recycling, but we also laughed, sang and planted wheat seeds into our recycled hand-made pots, decorated with used paper.

Check out our photos here! 🙂

Oh, yes! 🙂 we love to get together and clean up public spaces, especially parks that have been overlooked and in need of some cleansing attention 😉

Here’s some photos from one of our actions, last spring…

You can find all kinds of things in the trash…

What are your tales? what made you efficient and not so in your cleaning endeavors?…

It was sunny, warm and relaxing in Cluj-Napoca’s Central Park, this past Saturday. Alongside ELSA’s (European Law Students’ Association) volunteers, we gave info on recycling and gathered signatures for our petition: to reorganize the Unirii Square (in construction at the moment) so that little patches of green/at least a part of the original park will be replanted. The new plan includes mainly stone pavement; see the architectural plan here – http://www.slicker.ro!

Don’t forget to sign the petition here or on the previous post 😉

Greenish Thanks! 🙂

This Saturday, on the 23rd of May, starting at 3 p.m., we’ll be in the Central Park of Cluj-Napoca telling everyone interested about how and where to recycle. Together with the European Law Students’ Association and The Ecology Association “Floarea de Colt” we’ll be covering a tree in recyclable paper and encourage everyone to throw away waste wisely.

And we’ll be waiting for you!
