THE WORLD IS CHANGING

THE CLIMATE IS CHANGING

AND SO CAN WE

On April 13, 1999, the Ecological Association of Children and Youth of Moldova (AECTM) was founded in Chisinau, through the efforts of a group of courageous teachers led by Nina Strepan. They have been organizing creative and non-formal actions aimed at popularization of ecology in schools for several years.

In 2013, the association restarted its activity and was transformed into "EcoVisio", led by a small group of enthusiasts from Germany and Moldova, some of them being the children of the founders of AECTM. Since then, we have been working to reach the potential of Moldova as a model region of sustainable development, and to help people achieve positive changes. Our vision for the future of Moldova and the entire region is an active society, a healthy environment and a prosperous and equitable economy.

Our mission is to bring this future as close as possible to the present, through educational activities, the theoretical and practical promotion of sustainable living, the creation and development of communities, and the support of initiatives that share our vision. Last but not least, we are committed to gender equality in all our internal activities, campaigns and structures.

Throughout our years of activity, we have been lucky enough to have the support of many followers, friends, collaborators, partners and sponsors. And we are very grateful to each and every one.

In particular, Sweden (through the Embassy of Sweden in Chișinău) and IM Swedish Development Partner have had a special role in the development of our organization, providing us with core funding for a period of 3 years, from 2018 and 2019 respectively. Through this financing, we have been able to expand our team, grow professionally, work in a more structured way and take on new directions in the field of sustainable development, such as organic farming, waste management and energy efficiency.
