    To be honest, this challenge exceeded my expectations; it should continue throughout the year since I believe I still have a lot to learn.
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Get Involved in the Water Justice Movement
    Who is affected by water insecurity in your region? How are they affected? How are you impacted by water insecurity?

    With 2,500 springs and 60% of Europe's mineral waters, Romania is one of the countries with the richest groundwater resources. Even so, it is not entirely safe from the danger of a hydrological crisis. Approx 25% of the population of Romania does not have access to water and only has toilets in the back of their yard. 
  • Reflection Question

    How is food equity and access linked to a sustainable future?

    1. Because cities are designed in such a manner that certain individuals do not have access to basic and healthful food, these people will naturally have greater incidences of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, strokes, and death.
    2.  We don't eat with social, racial, economic, or environmental justice in mind? We buy too much and squander too much food; we buy food that is not locally produced, "non-traditional," since it is less expensive and everyone does it.

    In Romania, I recommend taking your cleaning products containers to Kaufland, your oil to Auchan, and your cosmetics to Sephora. Also for used clothes that are too old to donate you can take them to H&M,

    I live in the Somes watershed which is populated by 1 800 000 inhabitants in northwest Romania. The Somes originates south of
    Cluj-Napoca and flows, after 370 km, into the Tiza in Hungary and later into the Danube.  Unfortunately, Somes receives a variety of organic wastes from urban areas, factories, and individual households and treated and nearly untreated wastewater effluents from several cities.
