The ECOTIC Caravan and its projects for the general public

The “ECOTIC Caravan” project is co-financed through EU’s LIFE instrument that panglica caravana-01aims at raising people’s awareness on the correct recycling of WEEE (waste of
electric and electronic equipment).

On November 12th 2014, the ECOTIC Caravan was officially opened in Bucharest’s Alba Iulia Square, in the presence of environmental authorities, partners and media. The project is set to unfold between November 2014 and June 2016 at national level.

The central element of the Caravan is a mobile exhibition that presents ten types of dismantled WEEE, in order to educate on their various components.

ECOTIC and its partners aim at actively involving at least 200 schools in Romania in educational activities regarding environmental protection. At the same time, the general public in the visited towns are active participants too, since the Caravan is meant to station in at least 30 public squares throughout the country.

Up until now, over 20,000 persons visited the ECOTIC Caravan as a result of the campaigns held in public squares in many towns. Until the end of August, 18 such campaigns took place and over 10 tons of WEEE were collected.

We wanted to share our message to an wider audience as possible, so the Caravan was stationed in retail networks with the help of our partners: Dedeman, Metro and Romstal. The Caravan was also hosted in several SIGUREC locations and in many of Bucharest’s parks: Herastrau, Carol, Cismigiu, Circului, Tineretului. The Caravan then moved on to the Mask Theatre, the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant and thus over 20,000 people were informed on how to correctly hand over WEEE and battery waste, FOR A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT!

At the same time, over 50,000 pupils in 104 schools have better understood the reasons why WEEE and battery waste need to be correctly collected and recycled.
