Our Association carried out through the Youth in Action Programme of the European Commission a campaign to increase traffic safety and warning and awareness rising initiatives for youth that took place in 5 locations, 4 different cities (Satu Mare, Oradea, Cluj Napoca, Băile Tusnad ) during 2013-2014 .
The purpose of these actions was to reduce the number of road accidents, to facilitate the safe traffic of younger generations. During the initiative, we tried to draw attention of young people on the dangers of producing road accidents because of alcohol consumption while driving or before climbing behind the wheel and the dangers that threaten pedestrians in the city.
These objectives were achieved by educational tools (goggles that mimic drunkenness, computer games) and by way of warning signs and flyers, so participants were warned through non -formal methods of the dangers and real problems of the road.
The Association for Youth and Students in Partium (ATSP), on the framework of the Youth in Action Program, funded by the European Commission, organized a campaign to prevent accidents and to increase road safety, by initiating an action to raise awareness among youths. The initiative, entitled LIVES project is part of a series of events that take place simultaneously in different cities of six East European countries .
The aim of the initiative is to reduce the number of road accidents, to help to raise awareness in the younger generation on what means the safe traffic.
During this action, we want to attract the attention of young people to the danger it produces huge alcohol consumption accompanied by the traffic on public roads by a car or even by a bicycle. This was implemented by the use of less common instruments (goggles that mimic drunkenness , computer games , etc. ), so the participants acknowledged through informal methods the danger of circulating under the influence of alcohol .
During the initiative, the participants completed questionnaires, had the opportunity to blow the alcohol measuring probes, and many of them received free vests personalized with the logos of the LIVES project and the YiA program.
The first phase of this initiative in Romania took place in Satu Mare. This was followed by the second stage held in Oradea, between the dates of 20 and 22 September at Gekko Pub . The third stage was also held in Oradea, on October the 5th at the Lotus Center.
The campaign has proven to be successful so far on the grounds that the public interested to participate at this action exceeded 300 people, they seemed very motivated and interested in what we intended to achieve and used with enthusiasm the information and materials provided by this project.
Type of Program: Youth initiative, action 1.2.
Period: September 2012. – March 2013.
Place: Sfantu Gheorghe, Kos Karoly Street, no. 2
Participants: 13 youngsters, 80 kids
Main Sponsor: European Commission’s Youth In Action Program
Between September 2012. and March 2013., the Association for Youths and Students in Partium will organize a youth initiative entitled For a better future < recycle.
Our goal is to include 13 youngsters from Sfantu Gheorghe and its surroundings in the organization and realization of activities for children (80) from different schools and kindergartens in the theme of recycling and healthy lifestyle, to motivate the youths to get involved in social, ecological, educational and other kind of causes and actions, and in this way to become active conscious European citizens.
The activities of the project include workshops in the theme of recycling (creating objects from recyclable waste such as plastic bottles, cardboard boxes) and in the theme of healthy lifestyle (creating objects from fruits and vegetables), sport competitions, excursions, realizing and presenting a film about environment, educational games, cooking competition, etc.
Through the recycling activities (workshops, games, and film screenings), we intend to motivate the youngsters and the kids to behave eco-friendly and to motivate their family and friends to do so. Through the activities aimed to promote the healthy lifestyle (playful sport activities, workshops, and cooking contest), we intend to motivate the participants to try to consume healthy food and to do sports regularly.
At the end of each activity month we will organize an exhibition, where we will present the objects made by the kids during the workshops. After the exhibition, the objects will be sent to different orphanages.
The project will contribute to personal and social development of young people. They will acquire skills and competencies that they can fructify in the future (creativity, entrepreneurship, initiative, digital competencies, the ability to organize and to cooperate, and so on).
We hope that through this initiative we will contribute to the development of a more “greener” community, which is concerned about the environment’s fate and about the future of new generations.
We recruit young people to participate as organizers in the activities mentioned above.
We also encourage parents to “enroll” their children in these activities, because this program represents a great opportunity for them to develop their creativity, to become more environmentally friendly, and last but not least to make friends.

Type of program: Selective Collection of Garbage
Time: 08.10.2011 – 09.10.2011
Between 8-9 Oktober, 2011 (Satuday-Sunday) took place a campaign for awareness, with the help of youngsters. The aim of this campaign was to make more and more people aware of the importance of selective collection, and that it has a key role on the level of everyday routine. The initiating company was the Eco Bihor. They advertised the movement with three weeks before it, in different TV programmes, newspapers, and they tried to do everything to ensure success. On 7 October they held a discussion for the volunteers who took part in the campaign. Approximately 150 volunteers were present, high school students, university students and other youngsters, who got every instruction to the weekend program. We hope that we could move something in the minds of people in connection with the selective collection of garbage.
Description of the campaign
Taking in account the situation presented above, the ECO BIHOR company – as the manager of the Non-Hazardous Waste Landfill and Sorting Hall of Bihor county-, and the RER Ecologic Service Rt. – as the collector of the household waste – were starting an awareness campaign for the local community, in connection with the selective waste-collection.
Together with the campaign the schools were asked to organize a competition of collecting paper.
The program was based on the participation of volunteers, so we sent a group of 2-3 persons to each collecting place. Here they gave flyers to people, and asked them about their way of throwing out the waste. They were also attentive o the people who were doing it by selecting the waste. These people got some little gifts. The volunteers were talking with people about their opinion and their knowledge of selective collection. These youngsters were wearing a bilingual t-shirt with the motto , “COLECTEAZĂ SELECTIV- GYŰJTS SZELEKTÍVEN” (I collect selectively).
Type of program: Summer University
Time: 13.08.2011 – 19.08.2011
Location: Oradea, Partium Christian University
The 10th Summer University of the Carpathian Basin is over.
The 10th edition of the Summer University brought together more than 150 students, former students and guests from all over the Carpathian Basin.
During the program, the participants took part at scientific presentations and discussions and at different cultural and free time programs. At Wednesday the youngsters were at an excursion to Roşia Montană, where they got to know the history and the present situation of the Gold Mine project.
The Summer University was organized by the student association of the university, Association of the Hungarian students in Timişoara, our association, Rákóczi Szövetség, HÖOK and more associations.
“ …The Summer University of the Carpathian Basin is a good opportunity, for the Hungarian youngsters of the different countries of the region, to get to know each other, to change their thoughts, experiences, and to have new experiences, skills, and they can leave with new friendships. This way, besides the acquiring modern knowledge, a some kind of invisible net is forming, what helps the feeling of togetherness, and it intensifies the retaining power of the Hungarian ethnic communities…” (quote from the greeting of the patron of the 4th Summer University of The Carphatin Basin, Mádl Ferenc, president of the Republic of Hungary. )
Time: 20.06.2011 – 29.06.2011
Participating Countries: Romania, Hungary, France, and Spain (6 participants/promoter)
Main supporter: Agenţia Natională pentru Programe Comunitare în Domeniul Educaţiei şi Formării Profesionale through the Youth in Action Programme
The project emphasized a global problem and challenge which affects the environment, the life of people and the future of new generations: the problem of garbage, of waste. This problem approached through the attitude and behavior of people. The main goal of the project was to make the participants and the local community aware of their behavior, stimulating them to judge the inappropriate attitude and to “adopt” a green and eco-friendly attitude: do not throw the waste on the street
and in not allowed places, to “reduce, reuse, and recycle”. During the project the participants planed, organized and realized a campaign consisting of films, photos and informative flyers and posters.
On the day of the campaign the participants distributed and presented these materials to the local community in an agglomerated point of the city,and in the Cinema Libertatea , encouraging people to recycle and to consume consciously.
The project contributed to the social and personal development of youth and established intercultural dialog between the participants and between the participants and the local community.
The activities of the projects were based on the principles of non formal learning, including brainstorming, round-table discussions, creative activities, workshops and fieldwork. During the project we had round table discussion with the RER company and we visited the ECO BIHOR company at the city dump.
On 13 March. 2011-
the PIHE association organized a children day in the Cinema Libertatea. The day was coordinated by Marie Hand, participating to a European Volunteering Service in the association. About forty children spent the day in the Cinema Libertatea enjoying the well diversified schedule proposed by PIHE.
After a sportive and playing wake-up organized by Charles Szabo, during which children could meet each other, they could enjoy a pantomime show, played by the deaf-mute Remus Ilisie. This show “I want to fly” was a big success for the public. Then, the artist permited the children to discover the joy of pantomime by proposing an interactive pantomime exercise.
At the end of the morning, it was the Arcadia Pupet Theater company who offered us a show combining music, puppets, tales. A real pleasure!
At the beginning of the afternoon, David Bertin, also volunteer with the EVS program, gave us a juggling show with balls, a hat and stick, after which he initiated the children to do this activity.
The day ended in a more peaceful atmosphere with the projection of short-movies.
During free times, kids had free access to other workshops put at the entrance of the cinema. Inflatable balloons, origami, pearls, drawings, face painting, paintings, were some of the activities proposed.
The cinema, which will re-open soon, had been transformed for one day in a playing and creating place for children and for older youths!
The PIHE association thanks a lot to all the people who contributed to the success of that day, and also to the kids, for their happiness and their energy..
