A lot of little people, from a lot of little places, making a lot of little things, can change the world.

Over 45 young people from all across Europe gathered this week in Târgu Frumos to learn from the crafters and workers that make this place special. We got to discover and be inspired by the welcoming local communities and we would love to invite you to our take on the recycling matter.

Over the course of the week, we worked as groups to build recycled plastic items, inspired by your lifestyles. From jewelry to decoration, the five teams are so proud to share their work with you.

The goal of our project is to inspire a new way of living, more conscious and aware of the limits of consuming plastic. Instead of buying, what if we reuse? Instead of throwing things away, what if we transform them? You get back more than you think from making efforts for this planet. The benefits of our project will be integrally used to fund a device that measures the air quality here, in Târgu Frumos. This machine will testify of the improvements that still need to be done to create a better life quality of the town inhabitants. We want to leave a positive impact, just like this week did on us.

So, if you’re interested in joining this amazing collaboration between European countries, please meet us Thursday afternoon, in the park. 

Craftastic is a project made by youth empowered by the European Union, under Erasmus Youth Exchange Programme, inspired by Târgu Frumos.
