The Prague 10 district continues its long-term campaign for clean public space. They place six visual materials on the outdoor panels and their social networks, which appeal to the personal responsibility of the citizens themselves. Each bears an original slogan related to the Ten and the texts were invented by the inhabitants of the city district.
The town hall called the initiative “does not equal”, which is a phrase that is part of all slogans. to send more suggestions. Based on them, another five texts were created – the character? it is located between “Vršovice”, “Záběhlice”, “Strašnice” and “popelnice”, between “Malešice” and “bobkov na tisici” and “Skalka” and “landfill”.
“Of course, we all know that waste belongs in special containers, but not everyone behaves accordingly. We bet that the demonstrations of “bad practice” will always impress some citizens. We have involved the next part on the social networks in the preparation of the whole initiative, so these people will have a special motivation not only to behave responsibly, but also to have a positive effect on their acquaintances and friends, “ explains Deputy Mayor Jana Komrsková (Pirates), who is in charge of the environment in the management of the city district.
The materials also mention that the town hall interprets hundreds of thousands of amounts a month for cleaning up clutter in public spaces. “It’s not only expensive, it’s basically an endless fight. One day we clean some place, another is full of garbage. Last year, we strengthened the cleaning itself: We selected new suppliers and expanded the range of activities, they are responsible for that, and our administrative company PRAHA 10 – Majetková is also involved in the cleaning. In addition, we also use the institute of community service, ie alternative punishments, to clean public areas, and we have long supported volunteers from the ranks of active residents and local organizations or associations. But this is only a solution to the consequences. The key is to work systematically and conceptually to keep the waste itself to a minimum. “ challenge Jana Komrsková.
The tenth part of the city is therefore dedicated to enlightenment. This year, a separate “Waste April” campaign, in which it prepared without prevention by providing comprehensive information on the entire issue of waste management with an emphasis on advice and local solutions. It cooperated with a number of experts and active citizens 2021 in the category Ecological project.
