Abstract

Greenly Magazine supported and has been involved in more than 30 major national and international environmental projects. Between June 14th and 16th 2013, Greenly Magazine took part in Street Delivery with a project that aimed to answer the theme of that year’s event: “As habitants of the city and as citizens, we demand quality housing”! The so called ”Tree of Green Ideas” project, brought forward by the Greenly team, offered an opportunity for those attending Street Delivery to answer the question: What does quality housing mean? The goal was to highlight the perception bucharestians have with regards to life and housing quality in their own city, through an informal environmental education project. The people of Bucharest were invited to attach their ideas, represented as leaf-shaped notes, in the Tree of Green Ideas (a mandarin tree bought for this specific purpose). These idealeaves fall into three main categories: praises (laudative opinions), proposals or recommendations and complaints (negative opinions) in relation to the quality of housing and of life in general in Bucharest. The main negative aspects that have an adverse impact on the quality of housing and life in Bucharest are the various types of pollution (physical, chemical, aesthetic), the presence of waste in the streets, the decreasing amount of green spaces and the violation of town planning rules. For all these issues people came up with proposals that are made available through the Greenly Tree of Green Ideas.
