Bucharest, September 25. Two online projects of the Romanian Recycling Association RoRec are nominated at Webstock awards: www.rorec.ro site with the interative map of the national WEEE collection network, at the ”Utility” category and the online and social media platforms of the national environment education program the Recycling Patrol, at the ”Special Projects” category!
Webstock, the biggest social media conference in Romania, to take place in Bucharest, on the 26th of September, will award “the most creative and genuine online projects and campaigns developed in Romania in the last year” the organizers say.
The new website of the Associațion, www.rorec.ro , focuses on raising the awareness on the need to collect separately e-waste, by providing useful and interesting information, as well as accessible and qualitative collection services. As a dynamic and friendly interface, the website stands for a tool to boost the habit of separate collection.
The online channels of the Patrol nominated at ”Special Projects” are: the website lwww.patruladereciclare.ro, launched in September 2013, the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/patruladereciclare, that counts more than 32,000 fans and the YouTube channel, with the stories of the Recycling Patrols from several counties, as well as other useful videos.
The nomination comes in a special moment when www.patruladereciclare.ro celebrates one year since its birth. Ever since its first year in the virtual world, it turned to be one of the most outstanding online projects, serving the people and the ecological mission it was born for.
The Patrol website has attracted more than 22,000 visitors since September 11th, 2013, and 70% of the page content is provided by students and teachers. More than 15 pages and groups of the patrols over the country have been created so far. The activity of the patrols’ members is even more appreciated if we take into account the fact that many of them do not have an easy access to the internet.
The success and the positive impact of the patrol’s interface are due to the iConsult expert team in Sibiu, coordinated by Ciprian Stăvar, to the communication team of the RoRec Association, and mostly to the students and teachers. The structure created by experts comes to life due to the creative ideas and actions of the Patrols.
The nomination to Webstock awards proves that the Romanian Recycling Association RoRec becomes a more important and vocal actor in the field of e-waste collection and environment education in Romania..
