Changemaker: Mateo Alecsa - Green Village

Project Title: Green Village 

Changemaker:  Tudor Mateo Alecsa 

Message for the world: Helping nature, helps you! 

1. Previous experience 

When I was younger, I organized a campaign for promoting a healthy lifestyle by doing sport or dance, among the children of my class. Unfortunately, I don’t have any links.   

2. The Problem

In my village there are many people who do not understand the impact on their health and throw away, without caring, the garbage that comes from their daily activities. I have noticed several times how drivers throw packaging in traffic, which end up on the green field or in public spaces. These types of behaviors are affecting the children's well-being and represents a bad example for them. 

3. The Solution

I would like to run an awareness campaign on the impact of mismanagement of waste in order to inspire the people of my village to care more about the environment and to keep it clean. To do this, I will engage 20 children - of 7 to 12 years old, from my school. The activities will be:

- to share flyers, films and a poster about keeping the nature clean;

- to to set up a cleaning day and share a call of action for the community to help us, the group of children, to clean our village;

- to collect the waste from the center of Lungani commune,  thrown by children or adults. 

4. Beneficiaries: 

20 children 7 to 12 years old from Lungani village.  

5. Team:  

3 adults and 3 children will help me to implement the project. One of the children will my sister, Iarina. 

6. Objective: 

I want to carry out a public awareness campaign related to waste management behaviors by organizing a waste collection day, so that the children of Lungani and their families learn to keep nature clean. 

7. Project duration:  

2 months (February-March 2021)
