When we need the will to carry on, the community and its support plays a role in this.
A witty, funny and yet power talk delivered by Cornel Hoza on the founders of one of the most nonconformist NGOs in Romania. The talk is in Romanian, but we will soon add the English subtitles. So stay tuned. Until then, here are a few highlights: “Everything we did until now with Beard Brothers, without the active support of the community, it would have meant nothing” “How I see a community and changing the world in general…it is very important that each person from that community should do something.” “When you think about making a change, everybody thinks about doing great things or things which are hard to get. But it isn’t like this. think about this: if we would go now in the street and each person would pick up a cigarette butt, the street would be cleaner.” “ maybe it would be simpler to go to seven big companies and raise money, but for us it is more important to raise an euro from 150.000 people. maybe this way 150.000 people will be aware of the real problem in our society. A problem which concerns all of us.” “When we need the will to carry on, the community and its support plays a role in this. Otherwise I do not think we could carry on.” “I strongly believe in the unity between people. But we need to work a lot on it in order to get there. We should try as much as possible to identify our common goals and highlight them as much as possible.”
