The report had analyzed the pre-election legal framework, the provisions of electoral laws and regulations and the constitutional requirements and the international obligations assumed by Kazakhstan and concluded the elections preparation had fully complied with the legal, constitutional and international standards and the prerequisite factors for free and fair elections compatible with transparency and democratic standards are in place in Kazakhstan.

Between 22 to 29 April 2015 a Romanian delegation had monitored the electoral process in Kazakhstan.

The delegation headed by Professor Dr. Anton Caragea-President General Director of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation was comprised amongst others by Chairman of Senate Committee on Romanians Abroad-Senator Marcel Dumitru Bujor, the academic director-Professor Mircea Constantinescu and a number of electoral supervisors.

The delegation had monitored the Kazakhstan electoral process and the team directed by Professor Dr. Anton Caragea was deployed to south Kazakhstan regions of: Almaty, Chimkent and Turkistan.

The elections benefited from an impressive presence to the poll of over 95% percent of the electorate and the winner was the incumbent president Nursultan Nazarbayev, with more than 8 millions legally expressed votes.

The conclusions of the Final Report was that Kazakhstan elections where fully in agreement with internal laws and international standards, being classified as an example of transparency, organization and massive electoral participation.

All this factors are self evident manifestations of the Kazakh people trust in the electoral system, in free and fair and transparent electoral process and most of all in people satisfaction with the national economic and political system.

This satisfaction has being the catalyst of a huge electoral participation.

The overwhelming vote, in favor of incumbent president, was a predictable one as a supporting vote for stability, continuity and economic and democratic development.

The Republic of Kazakhstan can consider, on good reasons, that his transition towards democracy was favorable concluded with 26 April 2015 election.

The country can be classified as a functional democracy, that can accede in the future, to the status of consolidated democracy, had declared Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

KAZAKHSTAN 2015 ELECTIONS: THE LESSONS OF A DEMOCRATIC EXERCISE by Professor Dr. Anton Caragea MA, FINS, PhD

Supervising the elections in any country in the world is a momentous and difficult task and not to be taken lightly.

You have to observe the present, but with responsibility for the future and impartiality in your heart.

Election supervision

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea supervising election in Kazakhstan-26 April 2015

If you are supervising elections in Kazakhstan, the heart of Central Asia, the task is doubled in significance, as Kazakhstan has become an example in the world.

 

Kazakhstan has carved himself in the centre of international politics, the host of international meetings destined to bring peace and dialogue in the world, the place where technology and tradition meets and the mediator between developed and developing countries, a place where East and West can build a bridge for dialogue.

Observing elections in such a key country it is an honourable and full of seriousness assignment.

For all this reasons, the invitation offered to me, on behalf of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan, to observe the elections in the country, as an international observer, was a very challenging one, but nothing has prepared me for the phenomenon I was about to witness.

In Kazakhstan, on 26 of April 2015 I was witnessing the maturity exam of a people.

Born only in 1991, on the ruins of former Soviet Union, Kazakhstan was a young nation, a country only developing his democratic institutions and credentials.

After the early presidential elections held on 26 April 2015, we can safely conclude that this stage was phased out.

With a record presence at poll, of over 95%, people of Kazakhstan proved, without a shadow of a doubt, their commitment to free and fair elections, to build and uphold a democratic society.

While other nations are struggling to bring their electors to the urns and millions of voters disappointed by corruption and state inefficiency are feeling disenfranchised, in developing Kazakhstan millions of electors proved that democracy is not just an empty word to find in the political text books, but a living reality.

I have the pleasure of seeing the people of Kazakhstan taken their future in their hands and voting for their future development, for practical solutions, for experience to weather out the economic storm that is rummaging the world.

The elections in Kazakhstan where not just a democratic exercise, but they where the proof that the peoples power really exist and if the citizens are feeling involved in the economic, social and cultural life of their country, if the state is not failing them and provides the social benefits expected the people will respond partaking in the electoral process.

In the economic and political failed states of the world we can see the reduction of election attendance, the disinterest of the citizens and the broken down of the social contract that Rousseau and French revolutionaries had considered as the fundamentals of the state.

 President Anton Caragea on International Press ConferenceProfessor Dr. Anton Caragea meets the international press in Almaty, unveiling the election monitoring mission results

 

Kazakhstan state is honouring his social contract with his citizens and the response is this huge electoral participation.

95% electoral attendance can be a mystery in states where citizens are isolated and oppressed, but this is a reality in a functional nation.

In Kazakhstan, the 2015 elections where a national plebiscite in which the people decided above anything else their future.

I have observed this reality as hundreds of thousand of peoples turn out to vote accompanied by children’s and small infants, as they realized that it is not so much a vote for next few years, but a vote for future, for peace, for continuous democratic development and economic achievements.

Kazakhstan’s 2015 elections where undoubtedly democratic in nature, where fair and crystal clear transparent and where offering a few refreshing news for everybody.

On the fore is the news that democracy can be a real practice, can involve a nation that is educated and convinced of his role in history.

At the same time it was proven the fact that: governments and peoples are not confrontational actors on political arena, but they can cooperate to build a powerful country.

26 of April 2015 early presidential elections of Kazakhstan where the irrefutable proof of this self evident truth: that democracy can only work when all the people are involved.

NORTH KOREA IS FULLY RESPECTING HUMAN RIGHTS IS THE CONCLUSION OF A RECENT REPORT

A report of the DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies was released on Saturday amid concern and expectation of the public at home and abroad.

It reflects the characteristics of the socialist system, human rights policy pursued in the DPRK and the actual human rights performance in the country.

    The world is showing increasing concern for human rights issue and there are widespread actions for genuine human rights in all fabrics of social life.

    What is getting all the more undisguised on the international arena at present are political pressures on specified countries and attempts at interference in the internal affairs of those countries by abusing the inviolable human rights. A typical example is the vicious human rights racket against the DPRK.

    The hostile forces are persistently peddling the “human rights issue” in the DPRK in a bid to tarnish its image and bring down the social system and ideology chosen by the Korean people. They are becoming all the more undisguised in these moves as the days go by.

    Wild rumors and fictions about the DPRK are afloat in the international community due to the hostile forces’ despicable human rights racket to slander and hurt the DPRK.

    Under this situation the DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies released a report on human rights performance in the country to help the public properly know about the efforts exerted by the DPRK to protect and promote human rights and about the actual human rights performance and lay bare the false and reactionary nature of the reckless anti-DPRK “human rights” racket kicked up by the hostile forces and thus wipe out the prejudice and misunderstanding.

    The five-chapter all-inclusive report was worked out with the cooperation among several domestic institutions and NGO organizations, academic institutions and human rights experts in various fields.

    The first chapter deals with the ideological foundation of the state human rights system as regards the human rights system in the DPRK and the course of its formation and development.

    The second chapter deals with all legal and practical measures taken by the state after the foundation of the country to guarantee the rights of people and protect and promote them and human rights enjoyed by the citizens.

Human Rights on Korea

    The third and fourth chapters deal with the stand and efforts made by the DPRK for human rights in the world and major difficulties lying in the way of guaranteeing human rights in the DPRK.

    The fifth chapter deals with data studied by the Association as regards the prospect for guaranteeing human rights in the DPRK.

    As mentioned in the report, the DPRK has consistently enforced policies for the people from the very day of its foundation on the principle of putting the rights and interests of the popular masses above all and making them absolute and has exerted every possible effort to guarantee the people genuine rights.

    All the people in the DPRK, therefore, feel proud of the world’s most advantageous human rights system and policies such as universal compulsory education, free medical care and free provision of housings that are enforced in the country, and are striving hard to defend and further consolidate the man-centered socialist system.

    By clearly reflecting the human rights system and situation in the DPRK, the report proves that the anti-DPRK human rights campaign of the U.S. and hostile forces is acts detrimental to guaranteeing and promoting the rights of the people.

    The report also clarifies the efforts and stand of the DPRK on international cooperation for promoting human rights.

    Consistent is the stand of the DPRK to have genuine dialogue and cooperation in the field of human rights and contribute to promoting human rights in the world. The DPRK has never opposed dialogue on human rights but maintained the stand to have a candid exchange of views with the countries truly concerned for the human rights issue.

    But genuine human rights dialogue and cooperation have not been effected due to those forces abusing the human rights issue as a means for attaining such sinister politically-motivated purposes as interference in internal affairs and overturn of social systems.

    The release of the study report on the human rights situation in the country is an indication of its will to creditably fulfill its responsibility in the field of human rights and a positive measure to promote international cooperation.

    The report will help clearly understand how false and unrealistic the rumors about the DPRK floated by hostile forces on the basis of fabrications.

    The major source of misinformation about human rights performance in the DPRK are “testimonies” notably made by anti-DPRK fanatics who defected from the north. Those who cook up groundless stories about human rights to get a petty amount of money are without exception criminals who fled to the south for fear of facing a legal punishment after committing indelible crimes in their hometowns and immoral guys who are disqualified to talk about human rights.

    Their inhuman nature will be disclosed sooner or later.

    Whoever echoes what was uttered by the riff-raffs even after reading the report released by the Association must be imbeciles lacking the ability to judge the reality or tricksters seeking to attain sinister purposes even by making far-fetched assertions.

    The U.S. and other Western countries should not pull up the DPRK over its human rights but face up to the situation as it is and repent of their own poor human rights records.

    The DPRK will continue to exert its utmost efforts to foil the anti-DPRK human rights campaign of the hostile forces and meet all their challenges, step up the peaceful economic construction, steadily improve the people’s living standard and thus provide the people with better conditions for enjoying their rights.

The report will help set right the wrong views by widely introducing the DPRK’s human rights policies and situation and contribute to promoting genuine cooperation in the field of human rights.

A NATION WAY TO PROSPERITY AND GLOBAL SIGNIFICANCE by PROFESSOR DR. ANTON CARAGEA, MA, FINS, EDA

We are living through difficult and boisterous time. A period of rapid changes in world economic and political system, a time of powerful crisis that is shaking the fundaments of national states and of national economies and is putting under strain the social protection and all the values of economic neo-liberalism.

professor dr.Anton Caragea at kazakhstan 2050

In this chaotic period, just a few nations are allowed the luxury of economic and political long time forecast and predictability: China and United States are creating and proposing to their people and foreign partners a long term vision of development and national statehood construction.
In a time of peril and un-certitude, when even a short time economic prediction is considered hazardous, just a few nations are having the will to act as beacons of lights and direction for their region.

In 17th of December 2012 Kazakhstan had enter to this select club of nations, conscientious of their role and position in the continental and world stage by presenting an ambitious, realistic and well carved plan for future of Kazakhstan until 2050.
By the voice of his President, Nursultan Nazarbayev, Kazakhstan had created the prototype of a long term, healthy and stable construction model for the country, the region and the world.

Kazakhstan 2030: weathering the storm and creating a nation.

Kazakhstan it is not at the first step in a managed transition towards a stable and democratic society and a powerful economy.
In 1997 Kazakhstan had already carved the landmarks of his astonishing development by the presidential strategy- Kazakhstan 2030.
Far from being just a window dressing, the strategy for 2030 had proved to be a perfect way for charting Kazakhstan after the independence in the incertitude of nation building and construction of a viable economy.
The program had allowed Kazakhstan to tap into national reserves of oil and gas, to gush out of the enclave country status via the reconstructed Silk Road of energy and trade, to create a modern economy, not depending only on energy resources, to build a huge potential of national intelligence and to foster the economy of knowledge, the base for a XXI century reliable economy.

The long string of economic successes was accompanied in the internal sphere by political stability, based on democratic and open society values, the protection of national and religious minorities.
In the area of external policy, Kazakhstan had gather the powerful laurels of a successful reform project carried out during his Presidency of Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. An impressive success was also the unprecedented two year chairmanship of Organization of Islamic Conference that transformed Kazakhstan in a leader of dialogue between Islam and Western world.

The latest major diplomatic achievement of Kazakhstan was the proposal of building an area of security and cooperation in Europe and Asia, launched in September 2012, in Astana, at CICA Conference by President Nursultan Nazarbayev. This latest proposal makes Kazakhstan the promoter of an all-inclusive, intercontinental dialogue, that could transform the political landscape of XXI century.
In the end, Kazakhstan 2030 had proved to be not only a successful strategy for Kazakhstan, but also an example for all the countries of the world on how a nation by the sole fact of building himself, can become a regional and world significant player.

The main pillar of Kazakhstan 2050: understanding of XXI century.

In its world acclaimed book: The Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the famous Lawrence of Arabia had mentioned that: the most important, but also decisive part of a plan is to be in line with the necessity of his time.
Kazakhstan 2050 starts by outlining the fundaments of the world in XXI century. A period of change, of accelerating history, of economic, political and ecological challenges, a world completely different from the world of XX century.
Instead of training to force the reality to enter in the realm of possibility, Kazakhstan 2050 is offering a realistic and practical assessment of the necessities of today world and of the available solutions.
Fallowing his long term tradition, Kazakhstan understands that creating a success story and offering solutions to the world is the best way to serve not only his interest, but also to add value to his place in the world.
Kazakhstan 2050: good news for people of Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan had become in the last 20 years an abode of peace, inter-ethnic and inter-religious understanding in a troubled world. One of the explanation is undoubtedly the economic success that made the Kazakhstan not only one of the fastest growing economy in the world, but also a top investor destination in the world economy statistics.

Kazakhstan 2050 is providing the basis for this healthy economy to continue his growth process. Investing in social protection and creating a strong internal demand are key factors for a stable rate of growth. Modernizing the economic potential, investing in new technologies are policy that will insure the world competitiveness of Kazakhstan national economy and the creation of a knowledge based economy are also a profitable long term investment.

The modern economy is based on technological transfer and Kazakhstan is becoming a champion in modernizing the basis of his economy via technology transfer and more important, Kazakhstan educational system mixed with the accent on entrepreneurship in economic development is creating the base for a managerial revolution, that will put Kazakhstan among the top economy`s of the world in term of creativity and intelligence incorporated in economic production.

Extremely interesting it is also the concept of a Kazakhstan patriotism. Instead of playing the card of nationalism or chauvinism, President Nursultan Nazarbayev is calling for the tradition, language and equality to blend into a new and successful Kazakh: a person well educated, wealthy , healthy enjoying the benefits of a modern state and administration and a state of the art medical system.
Kazakhstan is promising to put at the core of his foundation plan for 2050 the individual and his chances to prevail in a complex XXI century.

From Kazakhstan to the world. From world to Kazakhstan.

One of the keys of Kazakhstan national and international success was understanding that Kazakhstan could not evolve alone in the world, but always must stay in touch and be an intricate part of the world evolutions. There are many examples that support this conjecture in Kazakhstan two decades of independence story.

Kazakhstan economic miracle was built on partnership with western companies and oil extraction technology, but also on political negotiation with Russia on Caspian Sea exploration.
The Astana Expo 2017 will also be a proof of the lesson of mutual profit that Kazakhstan is offering to the world. Kazakhstan management of energy, the lessons of ecology and energy for a future, of environment protection, are going to be beneficial for the world economy and for the generations to come. This is just a new illustration of the Kazakhstan concept of successful quest for global significance.
Kazakhstan economic development had transformed the country in a major player in the development of Asia and Europe. Kazakhstan 2050 promises to continue this wise policy: from Kazakhstan to the world, from world to Kazakhstan, creating a synergy that could only beneficial for all the world nations.

Now the lessons of Kazakhstan 2050 are available for everybody: an example of a society of free people building a country for the future, not in isolation or competition, but in harmony with the world nations. In the concert of nations Kazakhstan is ushering in a new tone: a tone of hope.

KAZAKHSTAN NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATED IN ROMANIA

Address by Mr.TalgatKaliyev, Charge d’Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan to Romania at the National Day Reception

December 11, 2012, Bucharest

Ambasadorul Kazahstanului

Excellences,

Distinguished guests,

Ladies and gentlemen,

Next week Kazakhstan will celebrate the 21st anniversary of its independence. Today Kazakhstan is one of the most prosperous countries in the world. The average income per capita is now more than $11 000.  The country is a champion in terms of raising foreign investments– in 20 years of independence the volume of foreign investments to Kazakhstan amount to almost 150 bln. dollars. It is 70% of all investments into Central Asian region. The emerging market in Kazakhstan, which currently hold a 51st position in the annual World Economic Forum rating of competitiveness of national economies, presents comprehensive and promising opportunities for doing business by foreign investors.  Kazakhstan also earned high marks in investors protection rating.

Security and stability in Europe and Eurasia is a cornerstone of Kazakhstan’s foreign policy. During its chairmanship at the Organization on Security and Cooperation in Europe Kazakhstan proposed a number of initiatives aimed to overcome the remnants of the Cold War, to decrease distrust and to strengthen economic cooperation as an integral part of overall security.  In this context Kazakhstan has established a strategic partnership with Russian Federation, People’s Republic of China, the United States of America and the European Union.  As you already know from the videoclip the capital of Kazakhstan, city of Astana won a bid to host an international exhibition EXPO-2017. This is another clear sign of recognition by the international community of Kazakhstan’s role in the world affairs.

It will be not an exaggeration to say that Kazakhstan-Romanian bilateral cooperation is now entering a new era. Our mutual trade volume exceeded $2,8 bln. Kazakhstan biggest investment abroad is here in Romania. Few months ago modernization of the Petromidia Refinery in Novodari owned by Kazakh national oil company KazMunaiGas was completed which place Romania in a rank of the leading fuel producer in the Eastern Europe.

It is also reflects intention of Kazakhstan to boost cooperation with Romania in energy sphere aimed to provide energy security of Europe. In today’s volatile world markets with unclear perspectives for the global economy a one billion euros investment by the National Company ‘KazMunaiGaz’ in Romania is a clear sign that we are sure in an economic sustainability of Romania.

A relationship between Kazakhstan and Romania are rightfully called as an example of bilateral cooperation based on principles of friendship, mutual respect and support.

Kazakhstan National Day

H.E. Kazakhstan Charge d`affairs – Talgat Kaliyev with Professor dr. Anton Caragea

In conclusion I’d like to express sincere gratitude to the Presidency, Parliament and Government of Romania for the permanent support and commitment to further development of relations between two our countries. I also would like to deliver special thanks to Professor Anthon Caragea and Mr.Gruia Stoica, president of the Grampet Group and Chairman of Kazakhstan-Romania Business Council for their outstanding contribution into strengthening Kazakhstan-Romanian friendship and cooperation.

Thank you for attention and enjoy the evening.

ROMANIA HOSTS THE SUPPORT CONFERENCE ON PLATFORM OF SECURITY AND COOPERATION IN EUROPE AND ASIA LAUNCHED BY PRESIDENT NURSULTAN NAZARBAYEV

On 13 November 2012, the Romanian capital: Bucharest, will host the principal conference dedicated to security and cooperation issues in Eurasia region for this year.

The Conference on Platform for Security and Cooperation in Europe will forge an European and Romanian diplomatic elite response to the new challenges on security in Europe and Asia.

Romanian constant support for peace initiatives proven during Helsinki Conference when Romanian become one of the funding fathers of Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and of Helsinki Agreements.

 

 The conference will analyze the most recent proposal put forward to achieve a security area from Atlantic to Pacific and a series of instruments to create confidence building measures and ways to resolving frozen conflicts in Euro-Asian region and to ensure détente on world scale.

In September 2012, at the Astana Conference on Central Asian Confidence Initiative (CICA) the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev had presented a complex plan to achieve peace and stability in XXI century.

The Bucharest conference, organized under the High Organization of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation, will debate the response that Europe must present to this peace and security initiative on global level.

The conference will listen to key world policy makers such as former Romanian President Mr. Emil Constantinescu, President of Romanian Parliament-Valeriu Zgonea, professor dr. Anton Caragea, President of Grampet Group Mr. Gruia Stoica, Director of European Diplomatic Academy Mr. Mircea Constantinescu, Kazakhstan Ambassador Mr. Talgat Kaliyev, Minister Dan Sova on behalf of Romanian Government etc.

In 2010 Romania hosted the Conference on Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe ( OSCE)  in support of reform program of OSCE

The new Platform for Security and Cooperation in Europe and Asia will allow Romania and Europe to regain a voice and an identity on international level.

In the last decade, Europe find herself paralyzed in his international politics actions by a list of frozen conflicts in Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Kosovo , hampered also by economic crisis and by debt crises and last but not least by a lack of long term vision of Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe ( OSCE).

On his turn, the Asian continent is confronted by the absence of a general security forum like OSCE, is highly fragmented on security issues and is confronted by a period of inter-state`s conflicts and tensions, aroused by economic crisis and the rapid pace of globalization.

  In order to avoid new global conflict, that could destroy the nation-states and put under question the present day international relations system, the only solution is to build a Platform for Security and Cooperation, that will unite all the states and organizations that will uphold as sacred a list of international law principles .

This list of principles such as: independence, national statehood, the non-interference in internal affairs and the cooperation based on reciprocal advantages and equality of small and big states and the relinquishing of the use of force or threat of using force and banning aggressive concepts such as: preventive strike and humanitarian intervention will appear as a necessity on global level.

The Committee for preparing the Conference on Platform of  Security and Cooperation in Europe and Asia.

Proiectul „Conştientizarea şi educarea tinerilor privind problematicile de protecţie a mediului şi dezvoltare durabilă” porneste la Galati si Bacau

Forumul Ecologiştilor din România este o organizaţie neguvernamentală, non-profit, al cărei scop este acela de a oferi asistenţă pentru soluţionarea problemelor de mediu din România prin promovarea strategiilor de dezvoltare durabilă.

„Conştientizarea şi educarea tinerilor privind problematicile de protecţie a mediului şi dezvoltare durabilă” a starnit entuziasmul tinerilor din Bacau

Susţinem implicarea societăţii civile în acţiunile de informare a populaţiei, dar şi asigurarea unei atitudini participative a tinerilor, printr-o conştientizare eficientă a problemelor de mediu şi prin oferirea unor instrumente practice pentru rezolvarea sau diminuarea acestora.

În acest sens, cu sprijinul Administraţiei Fondului pentru Mediu, Forumul Ecologiştilor din România va derula în perioada iulie 2011-iulie 2012 proiectul „Conştientizarea şi educarea tinerilor privind problematicile de protecţie a mediului şi dezvoltare durabilă”. Proiectul se adresează la nivel primar uneia dintre cele mai dinamice categorii sociale, care dovedeşte cea mai rapidă adaptabilitate la o viaţă bazată pe principii ecologice şi dezvoltare durabilă: tinerii. Avem în vedere aici elevii şi studenţii, grupând cele două laturi complementare: cei provenind din mediul urban, dar şi cei din mediul rural.

„Conştientizarea şi educarea tinerilor privind problematicile de protecţie a mediului şi dezvoltare durabilă” a starnit entuziasmul tinerilor din Galati

În cadrul acestui proiect, sîmbătă, 22 octombrie 2011 s-a desfăşurat la Galaţi, la Liceul de Artă Artă Dimitrie Cuclin, situat în str. Domnească, nr. 97-99, cu începere de la ora 10.30 o conferinţă organizată de Forumul Ecologiştilor din România cu sprijinul Administraţiei Fondului pentru Mediu privind problemele specifice de mediu la nivelul Regiunii Sud-Est ce a pus accent cu precădere pe sursele locale de poluare, zona Galaţi fiind una dintre cele mai sensibile din ţară din acest punct de vedere, dar şi pe comportamente şi mentalităţi ale publicului larg care afectează mediul. Această manifestare a fost urmată de o conferinţă similară desfăşurată la Universitatea „Vasile Alecsandri” din Bacău, cu începere de la ora 10.30 privind problemele specifice de mediu la nivelul Regiunii Nord-Est, respectiv judeţele Bacău. Iaşi, Botoşani, Suceava, Vaslui, Piatra-Neamţ.

Tinerii imbina informarea cu actiunea la Bacau : actiune de ecologizare reusita

Manifestarea s-a bucurat de prezenţa conducerii Universităţii, a numeroase cadre didactice, studenţi de la facultăţi de profil şi reprezentanţi ai agenţiei regionale de protecţia mediului Bacău. Cu această ocazie a avut loc şi prezentarea Albumului „Patrimoniul natural al României”, editat de Dl. Dr. Ing. Petru Lificiu, Preşedintele-Fondator al Forumului Ecologiştilor din România. Tot în regiunea Bacău s-a desfăşurat şi o acţiune de ecologizare la care au participat numeroşi elevi şi studenţi din regiune. Această acţiune a avut rolul de a creşte responsabilitatea acestora asupra gestionării ecologice a deşeurilor şi a necesităţii colectării selective a acestora în vederea reciclării.
