Botnaru Petru

Entrepreneurial activity as well is not developed in our country. Moldova being one of the countries of former Soviet Republic remains to be one of the poorest countries in Europe. Youth involvement in economic life is reduced, due to limited access to financial resources and an unstable business environment. Most youths believe they have no chance at a better paying job, or a secure future in the country: ...On December 14, 2012, the Vorniceni Village Council, Republic of Moldova, approved a decision(nr. 8/16) concerning changing the destination of a land area for the purpose of arranging of a square, this constituting one of the objectives of the Socio-Economic Development Strategy of Vorniceni village. Part of this land was planted with trees some 40 years ago but there has been a lack of appropriate care which is reflected in the deplorable condition they are currently in. Moreover, the design is far from being a modern one... The Decision of the Village Council to plant trees on the respective public plot was taken due to the mutual initiative of the local civil society and the "Terra-1530" NGO. From the very start more partners were committed to finding a solution for a community problem of global importance... The forestation will constitute our response to the Global Warming phenomenon.
