Green&Wild

The Green&Wild Association was born in June of 2010 out of a will to change the world starting from the community we live in, love of nature and respect for our fellowmen being the main features that define us as an organization. Our goal is to help our peers in need, to instill the education required in building respect for both human beings and the environment as well as to benefit from and promote the touristic potential of our country on a national and international level. We aim to implement projects and programs in fields like education, social assistance, support for people with disabilities, environment, tourism, art and sport. Since September 2011, our association has had an office located at 28 Govora Street which serves as a place of business. Thanks to the generosity of Mrs. Renata Brumaru, the vice-president of AFA N-V, the new office is fully furnished and equipped. The general expenses (rent, utilities, office supplies, supplier services) are possible due to the financial support provided by the Green&Wild Association’s president. Our website, www.green-and-wild.ro, is available to ensure transparency and a better communication regarding our activities. We also invite you to visit shop.green-and-wild.ro where we provide, through the Green&Wild Donation Shop, handmade accessories and decorations which we offer in exchange for small donations, the funds thus obtained being allotted to the association’s projects. The administrative staff of the association is made up of president, vicepresident, secretary, accountant, legal consultant, auditor, project coordinators, volunteer leader, IT and web administrator, HR manager, PR & event manager, social worker, psychologists, psychopedagogists, fundraisers and coordinators of various departments: the environmental department, the mountain tourism department, the department for the support of people with disabilities, the non-formal education department, the art out of nothing department, the painting and drawing department. All of these people work as volunteers.

Little Dora Social action which consisted in raising and donating 2000 RON to a 5 year old girl who suffers from medulloblastoma (a highly malignant primary brain tumor that originates in the cerebellum or posterior fossa). The diagnosis is severe, but surgical ablation and radiotherapy can lead to prolonged remissions. Although Dora was operated on, undergoing radio and chemotherapy, the postoperative expenses are extremely high thus this amount of money is very useful for her family. The action was possible due to the financial support of CES (Complete Engineering Solutions).

Calling Captain Planet Through this project, we intend to bring a positive change concerning the design and upgrading of public playgrounds, but also to raise awareness of the importance of safety and cleanliness of public spaces in general and of playgrounds in particular. We have identified a lack of environmental education in the Cluj Napoca community, a lack of initiative and action which leads to the alteration of the idea of a better future for the new generations. Thus we intend to address these issues by organizing the following actions: -lobbying local authorities -creating an online platform -organizing public awareness campaigns related to the negative effects of inappropriate behavior on the environment and also concerning the deplorable state of public playgrounds - educational seminars in 10 schools and 10 kindergardens as well as in the community, seminars which will promote methods of prevention and involvement -educational projections and debates on the topic of public playgrounds -building an eco friendly playground in a foster home -outdoor volunteering activities designed to help kids become more responsible by means of cleaning up actions and recycling workshops -drawing up a report with proposals of continuity and prevention for the local public authorities Depending on the results of this 6 month pilot project, we intend to develop and adapt it in order to implement it first in Mures county and then nationally. The total budget for this project is 5350Euro, 5150Euro being funded by The European Union through the Youth in Action Programe. Partners: Youth in Action and ClujNapoca City Hall

Free Pass To Nature: Recycling and Cleaning Pilot project in progress in Târgu-Mureş since October 2011. It is coordinated by Camelia Nirastean, active volunteer member of the association. The project aims to educate the community on how to correctly collect garbage and waste material and how to recycle it. It is implemented in most educational institutions in Mureş through actual actions of collecting waste, public awareness campaigns, contests, creative workshops using recyclable materials. The program is supported by local public institutions, mass media, publishing houses, various companies, the local Department of Sanitation and anonymous donors.
