The main projects through which the mission is fulfilled are: the Roşia Montană Marathon, the Education and Awareness Programs and the Campaign for the Nature Rights.
Roşia Montană Marathon means more than a sporting competition. Between 22-23 July 2017, the 5th edition of a special meeting combining sport, ecology, spirituality, nature and culture will take place. It is an event dedicated to promoting the Nature’s Rights Campaign and a healthy lifestyle and balance with Nature.This year, the run will also be in sustain for Roşia Montană entry into the UNESCO Heritage.
We are waiting for you there too!
Campaign for Nature Rights
In October 2017, a massive national campaign to collect signatures for the Petition of Nature’s Rights will be launched to recognize Nature as a living being and to recognize its rights – to exist, to persevere and to regenerate.
Through the implementation of the Nature’s Rights legislation, people become more aware of the direct connection to Nature, respect it, and not treat it as a resource or as a property. This will require 100,000 signatures.
Here you can sign the Petition for Global Initiative – petition.rightsofmotherearth.com
Since 2011, when Pachamama Romania has been established, to date, it shared the idea of the Nature Rights Project with tens of thousands of people, both directly through the sporting events I participated in, such as those created by ABRC, as well as through educational events (Natural Rights for a Sustainable Community, Symposium „Be Part to the Change”), going to dozens of schools, high schools and faculties in Romania (Academy of Economic Studies, Ecological University of Bucharest, International British School of Bucharest, Gheorghe Lazar National College etc ), and by world environmental events – COP 21 Paris and the Rio 2012 Summit.
The Symposium „Be a Part of the Change” is an educational program that gives you the opportunity to involve your mind, soul and hands in creating a sustainable, socially equitable and soulful environment. (www.pachamamaromania.ro/ateliere/simpozion-pachamama)
The collaboration with the Bucharest Running Club Association began in autumn 2011 at the 4th International Marathon Bucharest. Since then, they have been present at all the events organized by ABRC, being present at the hydration and encouragement points, this year managing to raise the energy of all runners who went to Unirii Square with the Drum-up drummer band.
