According to the Gniezno commune data, in recent years the number of its inhabitants has considerably increased. New residents include mostly young families with children, living next to one another and rarely establishing deeper relations with natives. The distance between these groups is plain to see. At the same time, older inhabitants more and more often experience limitations to participation in social life of the commune – they do not get access to all information, while the pandemic is not the best moment for the organisation of events. Consultations and research show that ecology and waste reduction are one of the key topics important for younger population of the commune.
In order to combine these needs we will organise a host of activities aiming at better inhabitant integration, e.g., meetings during which we will start new gardens or adjust old ones to climate change, workshops devoted to environmental issues and the ‘Atmospheric Garden’ competition. We will also run activities promoting the ‘zero waste’ lifestyle. To wrap the project up we will hold a Flea Market organised together with participants.
