The first green space in Romania with solar benches and free wifi, arranged by the Telekom Romania Foundation

From June 15, the people of Bucharest have at their disposal a new space for moments of relaxation: Aleea Magnoliilor, an area in the Bucharest Botanical Garden where nature and technology meet. The space offers visitors not only botanical exhibits, but also two benches with solar panels that allow charging phones via USB and contact ports, as well as free internet access via wifi, being the first of its kind installed in a green space in Romania.

The development project started in 2015 through the partnership between Team Work Association and Telekom Romania Foundation, targeting the Taxonomic Sector of the Botanical Garden "Dimitrie Brandza" of the University of Bucharest. In the four years over 1800 volunteers carried out cleaning and landscaping activities. to offer visitors a new experience:

  • The alley structure in the Taxonomic Sector is again visible and renewed, on each alley being planted or being planted a different botanical family (Magnoliaceae, Ranunculaceae, Rosaceae, etc.);
  • Magnolia Alley is the first arranged alley in the Taxonomic Sector, being composed of 11 magnolias with flowering periods from April to September; at maturity the height of the planted magnolias will be between 2.5 and 7 meters;
  • The new urban furniture (25 benches, 10 trash cans) allows visitors to fully enjoy the new space;
  • Two new information panels provide details about the Taxonomic Sector and Magnolia Alley.

The absolute novelty of the project is the installation in the central circle of the Taxonomic Sector of two benches equipped with solar panels, thus having energy autonomy; benches allow visitors to charge their phone via USB ports located on the side or by direct contact, using a special surface. Also, those who want to publish on social networks photos from the Botanical Garden or simply to be online, can do so by accessing for free the wifi network provided by Telekom Romania (WifiBotanicabyTelekom). Banks can also be used during cloudy periods, having the capacity to store solar energy on days with favorable weather.
