Episode 5 of Collective Choices was recorded in the Carpathian Mountains, in Transylvania, Romania. Christoph Promberger is the executive director of Foundation Conservation Carpathia.
We talk about:
-the story behind the biggest national park Europe will soon have
-fighting the government and the timber mafia
-what do you do when you receive a forest
-why a conservation project would have a hunting association and would sponsor a football club
-why Romania should be your next eco-tourism destination
-how lack of long term vision affects economic growth for generations
-how distrust endangers conservation efforts and why it’s worth believing in exceptional people
-getting along with bison and bears
-when Western Europe is not a good example to follow and when poorer countries have a lot to offer
-why you need (some) development in a nature reserve
-cute animal videos
