Go For Green” Project is a follow up of another voluntary project, “Greenthinkers”. “Go Green” projects adds value to “Greenthinkers” project through the fact that in the project activities are involved rural rroma communities from Inatesti, Simbotin, Racovita and Caineni. Another novelty will be the realization of greening campaigns and of promoting the promenade area of Capela hill (situated in Rm valcea city). Not least, the project will ensure the visibility of Erasmus+ program and there will be organized information sessions and seminars for young people regarding the opportunities of participation to Erasmus+ program.

- to promote the non formal education among the young people with fewer opportunities, mainly young people from rural rroma communities
- to develop entrepreneurial competences among the participants to the project
- to develop a lasting partnership between the partner organizations, partnership which will promote examples of good practices in voluntary field specific to environment protection
