Armenis and Teregova Schools Project, Romania.

At the beginning of June 2015 Green Teen Team Foundation members visited the town of Armeniș in Caraș-Severin County, western Romania. The visit was to see a presentation of student’s conservation projects. The trip was awesome! The student’s projects were amazing and it was decided that not only would they all win prizes but they would all be implemented over the coming year!
