Friends of the Forest Romania

April 2015, pupils of class III A, guided by Livia Nitu-Maerean, a teacher from George Bacovia, Secondary School, Bucharest, Romania in partnership with the National Village Museum ‘Dimitrie Gusti’, Bucharest, learned a great deal of information regarding ‘wood civilization’ about the usage of wood on farms in Romania.

The activity was named ‘Friends of the Forest’. Participating students were very impressed by the ingenuity of the Romanian peasant, the respect shown to the wood and the diversity of different objects that can be created from the forest's wood. Students have now given a new meaning to the words ‘Forest is the green gold of the planet’, this is wealth of the earth, one that can provide shelter, means of transportation, meals, and well-being necessary for a clean and healthy living.
