Walnuts planting

tree planting

In collaboration with NGO Ecovisio and the local school, we organized the first WikiWoods 2-days planting action in Moldova at the end of November 2014. About 40 volunteers of all ages joined hands in planting over 300 walnuts on a piece of abandoned public land at the entrance to Rîșcova village. Check out this video to see how it went! 

Eco-club

eco-club

In December 2014 we started weekly meetings with young people from grades 8 & 9, forming an eco-club in Rîșcova. Through various games, documentaries, case studies, experiments and practical activities we explore where the "stuff" around us comes from, how many resources are used to produce it, the complexity of connections between people around the globe and nature, as well as our environmental impact.
