“Sustainable development involves satisfying the needs of the present population without endangering the capability of the future population to satisfy its own needs. The people have a critical role in terms of effort and action toward achieving the goals. To make the Planet a cleaner and better place to live in, we can use reduce, reuse and recycle practices, we can use technologies that respect the environment and people, participate in socio-political actions for sustainability, and contribute to education.
I am forever grateful for this opportunity to represent my country Romania. Miss Planet International will definitely be one of the experiences that I will remember for the rest of my life, and what I would like to achieve is to represent my country Romania in the best way, but I also hope that I will raise awareness about the protection of our Planet,” said Mihaela.
