Summary of the project

The project aims to restore dignity to those few green areas in the neighbourhood not simply with the intervention of the volunteers, but rather with a participatory work of development education and awareness raising towards citizens, through the promotion of the culture of sustainability and environmental care. It foresees to redevelop the green areas in the neighbourhood so that they can represent a place for residents to meet and share experiences; plans to create a stronger and stronger synergy among the urban context, the green areas and the citizens themselves, through the development of a deeper awareness of the sustainable actions that can be carried out individually with the objective to educate citizens to a less passive and more proactive attitude not only within their neighbourhood but the whole city, region, nation.
