Europe day was celebrated on May 14 in Europe Square in the Central Park in Chisinau, Moldova. Agency "Moldsilva", Institute of Forest Research and Management and Agency “Antis Media” took part, presenting the FLEG II Program.
A queue lined up to the FLEG II tent. About 60 people took part in a quiz organized by FLEG II, and all participants received gifts: branded pens and magnets with rare animals and plants of Moldova. After counting all the results Antis Media presented the most knowledgeable participants with USB Flash drives containing information about the Program activities, interesting facts about forest and photo archives.
The Institute of Forest Research and Management and forestry “Telenesti” brought samples of tree seedlings for the exhibition that anyone can plant and thus contribute to the ecology of the country. The most interested guests received the seedlings and instructions on how to take care of them.
FLEG’s colorful printed publications were also very popular with the visitors. In addition, the guests took part in an interactive discussion with the doctor of biological sciences, head of the FLEG II Program in Moldova Aurel Lozan and representatives of the Institute of Forest Research and Management. The guests were especially concerned about such issues as illegal logging, environment pollution, and ways to solve these problems.
