Project Impact:

    The Project “ExoWorld Walk in the Botanic Garden of Cluj-Napoca” aims to reach out to as many people as possible. Our interactive poster exhibition, our workshop and our website are designed to accommodate multiple age groups and be a useful resource of information in astrobiology generic topics in the Romanian language. Through our website we propose lessons and activities that  can easily be  carried into classrooms by educators.

    To ensure our project produces a high impact, we aligned the project objectives to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Targets defined by the United Nation (https://sdgs.un.org/goals), “an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership”.
