PLASTIC - A DRAMATIC STORY
HOPE - Hands On Plastic Environment is being launched on the 22nd of December 2017at the County Public Library 'Panait Istrati' at Braila, Romania. Citizens, children, youth, educators, NGO staff, the media and Municipality staff are invited. The event will introduce the HOPE project to the local stakeholders, inform about the HOPE strategy in Romania and launch the call for the Green Week Festival to take place in 21-26 May 2018.
In short, the project is about creating a handbook containing portfolios of photos, films, and talks meant to illustrate the plastic journey within exhibitions taking place in the partner countries. The handbook is an informal learning resource for civic education professionals, environment activists, civic events organizers and the likes.
The HOPE Romanian strategy aims to
- produce a HOPE exhibition format including portfolios on 4 themes : plastics beginnings, plastic invasion, fighting global disaster and Plastic destination;
- contribute to the content of the HOPE Handbook structured along the four themes;
- attract activist and experts to speak and document one or more of the 4 HOPE themes;
- produce portfolios of photos, films and talks on one or more of the 4 HOPE topics for the HOPE handbook .
The EU Green Week will take place in May 21-26 2018 at Braila. It will be a HOPE Festival where portfolios on the four themes will be shown to the public by teams of youth, children and their educators. The winners will be awarded prizes and certificates and their portfolios will be part of the HOPE handbook in the chapter about Romania.
HOPE is funded by Erasmus+ of the EU for Strategic Parnerships - adult education and will last for 18 months in the period 2017-2019.
Asociatia Initiativa Cetatenilor Seniori from Braila is a partner alongside organizations from Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia and Turkey coordinated by ProArt&Co, UK.
