“Change of consumption style – global assignment for everyone for planet salvation” (2010)

Earth’s natural sources are limited. The salvation of our planet depends on many factors. One of them, probably, the most complex is that we have to change our habits, our way of thinking. These needs have to be understandable to all people on all levels. How to make it understandable to Ukrainians? Practical examples of two different Swedish towns prove that that is possible on the condition of co-working of city-government and population, involving informational and propagandistic structures.

Our project is a combination of the best Swedish experience on sustainable consumption and Ukrainian practice.  It was held in the framework of program “Facing the future – Swedish way of sustainable development” by Swedish Embassy in Ukraine in collaboration with Swedish Institution (Stockholm) and international ecological organization “Green Dossier”.

In the project framework there were held two workshops in Kiev (supported by Dniprovska district state administration) and in Kanev (supported by Kanev Nature Reserve).

It the workshops there took part about 100 participants from different regions of Ukraine, representatives of governmental structures and local governmental structures, non-government organizations, business structures, mass media, and, of course, Swedish experts.
