1,200 volunteers from Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova have been trained for two years to monitor problems related to the pollution of the waters flowing into the Black Sea, within a project supplied by European funds amounting to 870,000 euros.

Entitled „Establishment of a learning network for the consolidation of the effort of joint control and monitoring of the environment in the Black Sea basin – LeNetEco2”, the project was carried out by a consortium consisting of six partners from different professional backgrounds, including some with experience in the Black Sea Basin Program.

The partners of the project are: from Romania – Danubius University of Galati (leading partner) and the Cross-Border Cooperation Association Lower Danube Euroregion Galati; from Bulgaria – Prof. Asen Zlatarov PhD University of Burgas; from the Republic of Moldova – the Ecological Counseling Center of Cahul; from Ukraine – the Agency for Sustainable Development and European Integration Lower Danube Euroregion of Izmail and the National Polytechnic University of Odessa.

The general objective of the LeNetEco2 project was „the creation of a joint effort to consolidate and involve the society of the countries of the Black Sea basin by controlling the environment and monitoring the improvement of the state of the deltas formed by the rivers in this region, considering the fact that national borders represent an obstacle substantial for the exchange of information and knowledge, which are necessary for the control and monitoring of the common environment in the countries of the Black Sea basin”.

The project manager from leading partner Danubius University, Braila’s former vice-mayor Lucian Tilea, explained that the volunteers were taught to upload information on a platform related to the water pollution flowing into the Black Sea, with the data of the locations polluted to be transmitted as official notifications to the institutions empowered to ascertain the pollution and take the necessary measures.

At Danubius University, the course was delivered by Mariana Costin and involved 220 volunteers, respectively 80 pupils, 80 students and 40 representatives of local authorities and 20 representatives of commercial companies interested in the project, and it ended this week.

The project was carried out for two years and included the Ukrainian invasion, Ukraine being a partner country in the project, which accounts for certain financial and organisational adjustments were needed.
