About 40 pupils from several high-schools from Arad were present at Şoimoş fortress taking part to an action organized by Millennium Center and Mircea Galea – the local facilitator. The event took place on the 22nd of April 2009 on the day celebrating „Earth’s Day”. Together with the Association’s volunteers, they painted on old T-Shirts messages about their feelings regarding nature and afterwards they cleaned the fortress and its surroundings. It was an activity enjoyed by all the persons present as they painted, took advantage of the fresh air and of the beauty of the surroundings and left behind a cleaner fortress, gathering an important quantity of garbage. Hoping that the action was not in vain, the youngsters are asking all those who visit the fortress, and not only, to learn to enjoy nature’s charm without leaving evidence of their passing by. The care and respect for the nature is the way through which we can all give thanks for the peace and quite that nature brings to our everyday life.

The action took place with the help of Lipova City Hall and the Agency for the Protection of Environment, Arad as well as with the help of students and pupils coming from: “CFR” High-school Arad, „Moise Nicoară” National College, „Vasile Goldiş” Theoretical High-school, Economical College Arad, „Adam Muller Guttembrun” Theoretical High-school, “Iuliu Maniu” Industrial High-school, Arad.
