Final stage: ECOTIC Caravan carries on!

de | June. 8, 2016 | News

On Thursday, June 2nd 2016, the closing conference of the ECOTIC Caravan project took place.

Started in November 2014, the ECOTIC Caravan is one of the most extensive awareness projects on WEEE collection, co-financed by EU’s Life + Program. The official closing event took place on June 2nd 2016, at the Verona Garden - Carturesti.

The event marked both a final stage and a new beginning. "The Caravan Carries On!" was the message sent out by ECOTIC; the results of the project were very good and the requests for the Caravan to visit many more places in the country kept coming in, so the mobile exhibition of electrical and electronic waste is entitled to carry on.

The concrete results of the projects were presented during the conference. Here are, in short, the most important numbers:

  • 150 visitors
  • 85 participating students
  • Over 7 collected WEEE
  • 206 visited schools

A recycling workshop was organized during the event. It was attended by 30 pupils from Nicolae Labis School in Bucharest. Together with the Ecoterrian, the children demonstrated how they could creatively transform WEEE: mice, kings, even an electric Dumbo delighted the event guests at the final exhibition organized by the young activists.
