Interview and visit to Simion Mehedinți High School, Vidra – Vrancea

Interview of students from Simion Mehedinți High School, Vidra, Vrancea county – about the problems faced by the communities around Putna Vrancea Natural Park – and what solutions they have found.

We started Activate Future Leaders for Nature Protection as a national environmental education case study, with young people as the main protagonists.

Also, we – Propark-Foundation for Protected Areas – have in our strategy that through the experience gained, through the activities done since 2021 and even through the fact that we have trained these young people – to give support to the administrators of natural areas in Romania – in terms of their own education programs.

We are glad that over the years, a lot of amazing people joined our programme, because they want to make this contribution to raising awareness, nationally!

Thus, in partnership with Robert Diaconeasa – – we want to reach as many young people as possible with this information: that it is extremely important to get involved in various actions to learn and support nature, for the good of all.
