Congratulations and encouragement to all who are involved in protecting the environment. This school, School 11 in Buzău, puts a special emphasis on environmental education, on the circular economy, ie the materials that are otherwise thrown away are reused. Congratulations to the principal and to the students who participate in all these projects.
We are at a stage in Romania when we are trying to improve the whole framework for schools. A significant part of this whole whole that we have called Educated Romania is Environmental Education. We have developed a material that focuses on Environmental Education in Romanian schools.
A special note, I would like to make a remark about the local administration here in Buzau. We have found an administration that is very close to these topics and is involved in having projects in schools, which is of particular interest to us.
It is extremely important that the younger generation wants this approach to the environment in order to prevent climate change. There are a number of surveys that show that almost all children are very interested in these topics, almost all children and young people want to be involved in these topics, and so we have reason to be optimistic. The young generation wants to be more responsible for the environment and for our planet, but we, the politicians, the teachers, must come up with a favorable framework to give young people the opportunity to act in this regard, “the head of state said in a statement. statement to the press.
