In 2015, ProPark Foundation for Protected Areas decided to create a programme to promote protected areas from Brașov county. Within this programme, ProPark has taken a leading role by coordinating the efforts of the protected area administrators in Brașov and by creating a community that promotes the natural, cultural and social values from the protected areas in Brașov county.
This programme created the bases of a concept – – event organised in Brașov county during the period 2015-2017 through which protected areas are promoted among the general public by organising various activities (photo exhibitions, debates, seminars, film screenings, guided trips in protected areas, open days at various institutions of interest, green education activities). The success of this programme, financially supported by the Environmental Partnership Foundation in 2015, 2017 and organised with own resources in 2016, determined ProPark team to propose the replication of this initiative at national level. Thus, the acquired experience can be a model to inspire and motivate national teams of administrators to register activities that promote protected areas in several counties in the country. To this end, ProPark will draft a simplified organisation guide of the Protected Areas Week event which will be a tool for the project partners, but also for other administrators interested in joining the event, as well as an event-dedicated web page which will include information, photo registration form.
ProPark Foundation for Protected Areas will bring to the general public a few of the people passionately performing and activating in the nature protection field in Romania, talking by means of them about passion, professionalism and the necessary efforts in practice for the protection and preservation of nature. In this respect, a series of 5 movies will be made, which will comprise the stories of the people working in protected areas from Romania and in the preservation field in general. This will mark the first step towards the acknowledgement, promotion and stimulation of professionalism and leadership in the nature protection field in Romania.
Another important activity of the project is the “promotion package of Brașov county” which will include 3 communication products prepared during the past years: photo album, postcard package and the Brașov Nature movie. These will be translated into English, printed and prepared for county promotion.
This year, 3 ambassadors are involved in the project: Administration of Dinosaurs Țara Hațegului, Association for Biodiversity Conservation (ACDB) and Călimani National Park which will join the Protected Areas Week event by organising local activities.
Budget: 22,240 RON out of which 19,950 represents the financial contribution from the Environmental Partnership Foundation and MOL Romania,
