Founder and Coordinator, IntreVecini


Mihai Toader-Pasti is the founder and one of IntreVecini coordinators, an organization working to build a decentralized network of sustainable micro-communities throughout Romania. He also co-founded and managed Romania’s most awarded sustainability non-profit, EFdeN, which connects students and young professionals with sustainability efforts. Under his leadership, the EFdeN team designed and built two of the world’s most sustainable homes and Europe’s highest scoring certified green-building project. In 2021, Mihai coordinated the implementation of Romania’s Presidential Administration Green Schools national strategy for almost 4,000 schools in urban and rural areas. Mihai believes that sustainable dwellings are simply one component of a successful sustainability movement, and he also incorporates community engagement, nature, energy, culture, and the arts into his work.
