Short Description

We want to arouse a public debate on the Romanian health system in order to create the path to a reformation of this system. We are estimating to reach an audience of at least 500,000 unique viewers on Youtube and on our website. The video documentary will last at least 45 minutes.

After we published the video-investigation โ€In the footsteps of the wooden thievesโ€, about the illegal logging of the forest, ( we managed to create a public debate in the public space and to put these topics on the public agenda.

Moreover, this investigation contributed to the decision of the European Commission to put EU member Romania on notice for failing to tackle illegal logging and not doing enough to protect the forest.
