And here comes the report (with a little delay) for GENERALKA WEEKEND – DAY 3
Kruševo had their action already on Friday and everyone was there – we see all generations of citizens with those gloves and PAKOMAK bags roaming in their city and beautiful forests and recreation areas around the city. Especially the young stood our with ambition and dedication to bring the best out of their hometown by collecting the worst and bring it to a controlled circle of recycling!
In Kriva Palanka the “GENERALKA WEEKEND | Za Cisto Kako Doma Isto” was nothing less than a civil mobilization and a huge party! The EU day on Sunday additionally produced a wonderful momentum which has brought more than 300 people on the streets, into the forests, to picknick sites, the riverbanks and they cleaned! And how they cleaned. In the end of the action Krusevo looked more than a private British golf yard than a public place for normal citizens! Orchestrated teamwork in perfection between the municipality, NGOs, schools, private initiatives and the people of Krusevo! Impressive!
Strumica also celebrated the EU day and a great come together with NGOs and SONCHEVI PIONERI to join forces and clean the wonderful parks and impressive sites throughout the city of Strumica.
So it continues: GENERALKA WEEKEND – Day 2 😀
And how it continued – great responses – big numbers – enormous energy!
Today we started at Štip with a visit of the Minister of transportation and former mayor of Štip Mr. Blagoj Bočvarski, who joined the cleaning action together with the whole administrative of the municipality of Štip and our SONCHEVI PIONERI. We are especially proud that we have seen people from all ages, being energetically and euphorically involved in collecting waste. We´ve seen a great movement in today´s action in Štip and lovely motivated people, who inspire not only us but also the whole country with their iron will to make things better!
Ohrid was the huge epicenter of positive energy on the Balkans today and this earthquake was produced by a great number of SONCHEVI PIONERI, who cleaned the wonderful beaches of Grašnica, Gorica, St. Stefan and Peštani. By singing songs and waving flags those young people went through the streets and picked garbage in an incredible volume! We are blown away – we saw, heard and felt the future of our country! The municipality of Ohrid, the kumunalno Ohridski Komunalec, Association of Citizens, “Coast of Youth”, “Clean Ohrid” and the citizens of Ohrid have shown us again today their strength and ability to create a sustainable green and clean renewal in their city!
Veles just doesn´t stop – actually they are unstoppable 😀 More than 150 people joined the GENERALKA WEEKEND today and made themselves dirty to clean! The fairytalish island on the river Varder near the City Park was targeted for cleaning – boats with Pakomak bags full of trash were delivered over the river. But also the old road to Skopje and the forest belt towards the village Sobot were cleaned. All of this wouldn´t have been possible for our SONCHEVI PIONERI alone – they were supported by: ZBVP “Macedonian Rescuers”, ZG Greenpower, Komunalno Derven, Schools, NGOs, Municipality administration and Volunteers from the Red Cross! Again the people of Veles demonstrate how to combine great organization and heartful dedication for a greater goal!
And the municipality of Gevgelja have joined forces with the komunalec, members of the council of the municipality of Gevgelja, representatives of schools, mountaineering assosiations, NGOs, “The Center for Children With Special Needs Mother Teresa” and the citizens volunteers SONCHEVI PIONERI to clean the old Kaserna. We have seen this site before and after the cleaning action and it´s again mind blowing, what can be achieved, when all members of society come together and care about each other and their environment! Today Gevgelja stood together again as one and proved that this city and these people do care!The “GENERALKA WEEKEND | Za Cisto Kako Doma Isto” is still not over – tomorrow SUNDAY 9. May you can join Strumica and Kriva Palanka – not only to celebrate the EU Day, but also to get yourself dirty and clean 😀
