The month of March is a symbol of growth and spring. This month opens new roads and gives us hope, and on this occasion, we wish you all a happy spring!
Webinar: We’re talking about Stress and Trauma in Difficult Times
Although spring brings us joy and hope in our souls, this year’s global events challenge our emotions, feelings and experiences. We cannot remain indifferent to all of this, therefore we would like to announce that we are going to organize a series of webinars dedicated to headmasters and teachers. These webinars are for those who are responsible for providing students with explanations about the current context, solutions and the methods they should adopt, so that difficult emotional situations are managed as efficiently as possible. The headmasters and the teachers are obligated to come up with concrete answers and solutions regarding the pandemic context, but also for initiating a potential state of alert for carrying out national and international military actions.
Considering this context, in collaboration with the Cluj County School Inspectorate and the Transylvania College Foundation, we organize the webinar, “We’re talking about Stress and Trauma in Difficult Times”.
The materials developed for this webinar were created in collaboration with experts in the neuroscience field from the United States of America, with the support of psychologist Sarah How. Even if, in the first stage, the webinar is addressed to teachers in Cluj-Napoca County, in the near future we intend to expand the series of webinars throughout the country, so that all educators can act effectively in these presented situations.
The materials made available to the headmasters and teachers contain suggestions for creating lesson plans, which will facilitate the understanding of the events by students and young people.The topics addressed in the webinar will be related to risk factors, which have a strong emotional impact on children and adults, and their understanding of stress and trauma. Moreover, a series of techniques will be explained that support the effective management of feelings and emotions that can disturb our tranquility.
The event will have a training format and will take place on the Zoom platform, to be transmitted by Simona Baciu. The dates for this webinar are as follows:
MARCH 10th – The webinar dedicated to the head masters;
MARCH 15th – Webinar dedicated to the teachers from primary education;

Global Movement Saves the Ground – Conscious Planet
The importance we give to well-being is reflected not only in human relationships, but also in the care we give to the environment. Sabina Pop, trainer and psychologist within the Happy Teachers for Romania program, is one of the members of our team that militates for a Conscious Planet. This global initiative to Save Our Soil is intended to attract the support of world leaders, influential figures and more than 3.5 billion citizens, to prioritize environmental concerns everywhere. Eminent institutions, scientists, public figures and spiritual leaders such as the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), Dr. Jane Goodall, Deepak Chopra and the Dalai Lama, have already joined in on the effort to achieve this goal.
Through our initiative, we aim to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to get involved in this evolving project. The project offers teachers, pupils and students the opportunity to be informed and volunteer from their own homes. This is a part of the unique global initiative to acquire communication, organizational skills and more.
We want to emphasize that it does not matter what subject you teach, whether you are an educator, a teacher or a headmaster. All that is important is that you want to share your knowledge with your students about the importance of saving the soil. In order to achieve the proposed objective, we provide those interested with resources and possible activities that you can use and explore in the classroom.
If you would like to get involved, please express your interest by sending an email to Sabina Pop at: email@example.com. Subsequently, you will receive an email from Roxana, teacher and volunteer of Save the Soil – Conscious Planet, and she will share with you valuable resources and the next steps in this endeavor.
