Romtelecom and COSMOTE Romania are launching teimplici.ro, the first online referendum-platform for corporate responsibility which allows Romanians to vote and set the priorities in terms of the community well-being.
teimplici.ro aims at setting a solid base for an online community destined to all those who are interested in the future of the society they live in. Be it non-profit organisations or active, involved citizens, everybody is invited on teimplici.ro to vote the directions they consider to be priorities and at the same time the frame of future concrete projects.
The six major directions for developing community projects available are: education, health, social protection, environment, development and innovation for the society. Between June 3rd and June 30th, any person or legal entity can support on teimplici.ro either of the proposed directions for involvement, by adding comments or new particular areas of interest and openly promoting these in their community.
“Teimplici.ro was born out of our need to get involved actively and in ways that are most relevant to the communities we activate in. We operate with figures and statistics to motivate our decisions on a daily basis. We believe, however, that it is important to see beyond the trends that studies uncover, to see the people behind the numbers and to offer them the opportunity to speak about how they see the future and how they would get involved in developing the community they belong to.
We have thus decided to directly ask Romanians what it is that really matters to them.We hope that by the end of this “referendum” we’ll have gathered valuable conclusions and concrete projects, that will be endorsed by as many citizens and will set priorities for our company and the private sector in Romania” stated Ruxandra Voda, Corporate Communication Director, Romtelecom and COSMOTE Romania.
Amongst the first active members of the community on teimplici.ro and valuablespeakersare partner organizations like Asociatia Telefonul Copilului, Smartatletic, Asociatia Amazonia, Asociatia Mai Mult Verde, ViitorPlus – Asociatia pentru Dezvoltare Durabila, Fundatia Leaders, Asociatia P.A.V.E.L. The hereby list remains open, any organization being welcome to adhere to the community on teimplici.ro by supporting the themes that are relevant to their activity.
The teimplici.ro community will continue to be developed also after the announcement of the “referendum” results. On the grounds of the options expressed by the public, the community will enter a new phase, one of project crowd-sourcing, aiming at collecting ideas that would later on be developed and supported by the private sector. The online community of teimplici.ro will play an important part in selecting the most relevant and urgent projects and in promoting those towards being funded. The details of the actual project voting and selection mechanism will be made public at the end of the first stage of teimplici.ro, after June 30th, 2014.
