The beauty of acting in an ecologically responsible manner and promoting sustainable development is that communities can devise their own original ways of doing what is best suited to them. Milica says that ideas for action can be found in ‘building yards or interiors, parks, streets, galleries’ and for those who still need inspiration she suggests a walk down the ‘eco town’ of Belgrade and experiencing one of the following:
‘Breathing sculptures’ of the Topiary Art Trust which brought nature into the urban greyness and as Milica says, prioritised ethics and ecology over aesthetics.
The mural by Italian graffiti artist Blue saying ‘Stop the destruction of nature’
Eco atelier built of straw and wood by the river by the volunteers of the non governmental organisation ‘Kulturban’ where young people can have their say and share ideas with others.
A rubbish-swallowing ‘robo’ bird which tells the passers by ‘Don’t be ashamed to recycle’ form several locations in town.
Look around, says Milica, and you will see a ‘sustainable design’ everywhere. Designers are using biodegradable materials kind to the environment and giving old things a new lease of live. There is an ‘eco town’ in every town and it is up to you to discover it.
