18.blog post ENG
Hello people! The Estonian groups have held a meeting which sure was quite productive. We have been working and thinking how we can progress our idea and finally we solved it.
Estonian idea of social Innovation was described before on our FB page https://www.facebook.com/innovatebrnotallin/posts/1409054162727478:0
At the moment we are half way in realising our idea. During working progress we became really aware of how much volunteer works and local events take place in Estonia with a purpose of cleaning forests and parks, but with all that said many people don't take part in this even though it sure is desirable. The biggest problem is that the Estonian Republic is distinguishing a lot of money to clean up the trash that the people have left. This year the organisation RMK has spent 53000€ on cleaning the rubbish left by the people.
We decided that our "Eco Signs" won't be prohibitive or forbidding signs. We adhere to the idea that informing signs will work better. Our plans are to make our signs real and after make a "TEST DRIVE". As we want to check will the people pay attention at our signs.
