Romanca Society participation at W12 Festival 2014 , London

W12 Festival in London generate a busy time for August diary of activity in White City. The Mayor of LBHF opened the W12 Festival with a focus on the White City community development .

Diaspora Festival 17-24 august 2014, Eforie Nord

O saptamana de discuții si dezbateri a marcat desfășurarea unui eveniment reprezentativ pentru diaspora româna la Eforie Nord, debutand cu deschiderea oficială in prezenta Primului Ministru al Romaniei , Victor Ponta.

O participare activa a asociatiile si organizatiilor romanesti din străinătate , in cadrul relaxat al litoralului , a generat un cadru potrivit generarii de noi parteneriate si prietenii.

Dezbaterile uneori aprinse sau contradictorii, alteori informale au dat măsura acestui eveniment in care mulți dintre participanți si -au pus speranța in rezolvarea unor aspecte concrete ale activității cetățenilor romani care trăiesc in străinătate.

Participanți au plecat spre casa cu noi idei si proiecte , o inițiativa distincta detasandu-se clar: decizia unora dintre participante de a fonda Uniunea Femeilor Românce de Pretutindeni, inițiativa despre care vom mai auzi cu siguranță.
