    1. Improved involvement of the local community in events organized in its quarter.

      This initiative is targeted at Nowa Huta residents: tenants of block of flats and multi-family buildings who wish to arrange and develop the green area round their place of residence. The purposes of this undertaking are the following: improvement in the state of greenery, integration of the local community, improvement in the quality of life and identification with the place of residence. The project, initiated at the beginning of 2011, stipulates that green areas accessible and friendly for residents, are created in Nowa Huta districts. By mid-April 2011 specially appointed social groups were sending proposals for the location of gardens to be then assessed by the jury. Accessibility of the area, its surface and declared own contribution of a social group toward the purchase of, among other things – free seedlings, played important role in this assessment. Participation in the project was to be declared by the group of residents, which came up with an offer to arrange and develop the green area, had a right to develop this area and accepted rules and conditions of the project regulations. This project is being continued. Its authors are planning establishing gardens in Nowa Huta districts which will become a showpiece of the project when it is completed.
