Romania’s golden treasure is its biodiversity
Alexandra Postelnicu and Cristina Dragna met with Mr Nicolae Galdean, Vice-Dean of Romanian Ecological University
In early February 2012, I had the honor to meet Mr. Nicolae Galdean, the vice-dean of the Romanian Ecological University. Cristina Dragna and I were very touched by the warm welcoming, Mr. Galdean offered us, and we could feel immediately, his warm heart and love he had for Mother Earth. Mr. Galdean was very happy to hear that the project of Rights of Mother Earth exists, and he offered his partnership on behalf of the ROMANIAN ECOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY towards raising 1 million signatures for the Earth Summit at Rio de Janeiro. on June 2012. To start out with, we agreed to create workshops for students around the theme of RIGHTS OF MOTHER EARTH.
We also talked about the most pressing ecological issues in Romania: the mining project, Rosia Montana Gold Coorporation and the deforestation, which impacts the water regulation cycle.
Mr. Galdean also shared his experience of teaching in Brazil and of having been being on several trips to the rainforest. He only used words of awe and appreciation of those lands and said it was one of the most inspiring trips of his life. Having been in the Ecuadorian rainforest. I resonated with Mr Galdean’s sharing and I felt the presence and deep holding of the Spirit of Pachamama and Mother Earth, which I felt in Ecuaor.
I am very happy that in Romania, there are still professional people like Mr. Galdean who think with their hearts, and devote their lives to the preservation of the lands of Mother Earth. And at the end I had a feeling of excitement, patriotism, and responsibility when I found out that ROMANIA HAS THE BIGGEST BIODIVERSITY IN EUROPE. THIS IS ROMANIA’S GIFT FOR THE WORLD.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE ROMANIANS KNOW HOW TO TREASURE AND MAKE FLOURISH THIS GIFT OF GOD!
