One Day in Moldova 12.12.12: The story from the Republic of Moldova focuses on the future people want

17 Dec 2012

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in the Republic of Moldova participated in the world’s largest media collaboration “One Day on Earth 12.12.12”.

The film from the Republic of Moldova, the first to be produced by the participating UNDP country offices around the world, illustrates through images and people’s testimonials a trip which begins at 0 kilometre in Chisinau, continues on the Europe’s longest street – Muncesti, and ends in rural Moldova. The voices of people in this film tell about what their communities need most to grow and prosper.

„The voice of people is key for the national consultations on the future Moldova wants”, said Nicola Harrington-Buhay, UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Moldova. “The consultations will engage everyone – public administration representatives, NGOs and grassroots organizations, private sector, trade unions and workers, and the academic community, in particular people whose voices are less heard”.

The United Nations in Moldova launched on December 13 in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova the national consultations on key concerns and aspirations for Moldovan people after 2015, the target year of the Millennium Development Goals which Moldova committed itself to achieving, together with the other 191 UN member-states in 2000 in New York.

After 10.10.10 and 1.11.11, the 12/12/12 film will complete the trilogy of films  of the global initiative “One Day on Earth” supported by UNDP. Filmed in one single day, it features initiatives and projects aimed at building a better life for everyone.
