A Future without Rubbish: “Romania needs this project!”

(Mayor Avram Pinte, of UNESCO-listed Valea Viilor)

London/Cisnădie, 7th August, 2017

 

Clear Public Space is delighted to announce their event, to celebrate the launch of their ‘Un Viitor fără Gunoi’ (‘A Future without Rubbish’) project, in the beautiful town of Cisnădie in Romania, on the 5th October, 2017.

Starting in UNESCO-listed towns and villages across Romania, the project aims to improve recycling rates and to clear public spaces of litter, as well as facilitating behavioural change for a future free of rubbish, by using a series of inter-related activities that involve local schools, local councils, businesses and local communities.

The project is run by Clear Public Space and Asociata Un Viitor Fara Gunoi. Activities include presentations, art, video and singing, day trips, visits to apiaries and even meeting Spiderman! The vision is for this model to be replicated across Romania, and eventually expand into other countries.

This vision seems is shared by others – Romania’s Ambassador to the UK, H.E. Dan Mihalache, hopes “the model could be taken up throughout the world”, while UNESCO-listed mayor of Valea Viilor, Primar Pinte, says that “Romania needs this project!”, but first before going international it “should be a model for surrounding communes”.

Taking place at the newly opened Casa de Cultură a orasului Cisnădie, the event has a jam-packed agenda. Professor Helmut Maurer from the EU Commission in Brussels and Gheorghe Huja, the Mayor of Cisnădie, will give presentations and there will be a surprise performance from some special guests! Guests will eat delicious local produce, and water supplied by Aqua Carpatica, our official water supplier. The whole event will be a wonderful celebration of a community coming together to fight for a better future without rubbish.
