EcoVisio is an environmental NGO from Moldova focusing its work on empowerment and capacity building for resilience and sustainble development.
The biggest challenge of the 21st century for our society and economy will be to enable happy and fulfilled lives with much less energy in form of fossil fuels. Peak Oil, Climate change and other negative aspects on humanity will force us to. In industry, agriculture or life styles Moldova is starting a transition period towards more resilience.
The pre-conditions for Moldova’s transition period are not bad: Soil and climate advantages allowed Moldova to be the fruit and vegetable garden of the soviet union, polluting heavy industry has not been settled. At the same time in the last decades Moldova has become more and more dependent on energy, gas and other products from outside. In the 90s our economy collapsed and many capable people are still leaving our country.
In all parts of our society we need people that share our positive vision of our country: Ecological agriculture, recycling, more trees to keep our soils, renewable energies, lower energy consumption, more leisure time, healthier and regional food and so on.
EcoVisio connects people that want to work on a common vision for our little country. We train people and provide them with instruments to achieve little projects in their neighborhoods or villages. We share information about the situation of our planet and start own projects. We will be very happy if you share a bit of our vision and get in contact with us.
Our NGO was founded in 1998 in Chisinau, Moldova by Nina Streapan initially as the Association for Children and Youth in Moldova and transformed itself over time in order to reach out to a wider audience. Now the largest project of EcoVisio is the activEco program (educating environmental ambassadors) in Moldova in cooperation with the Theodor Heuss Kolleg Program of the Robert Bosch Foundation.
The interdisciplinary team of EcoVisio combines experiences of civic involvement for democracy with environmental expertise based on work and volunteering backg
