Green Revolution Association in partnership with Carl von Linde Foundation launched on Wednesday, May 21st, 10:00 o’clock, «Take a deep breath», a project regarding education and public awareness of the importance of air quality.
During May 21st – September 30th the project intends to draw the wide audience’s and the authorities’ attention on the importance of adopting legal or administrative measures, of changing mentality and, not last, of adopting a life style that provides clean air in big cities.
Represented in the form o a mobile construction consisting of two transparent domes, located at the intersection of Magheru Boulevard and Anastasie Simu Street, project «Take a deep breath» offers the audience an antagonistic sensorial experience: in the first dome an ideal world is built, filled with vegetation, peaceful and relaxing, while the second dome presents the image of a possible future, a future in which man is trying to rebuild a destroyed and lost world.
As of today, July 25th 2014, the domes are located in Herastrau Park, near the Cultural Wheelbarrow area and will stay here until October 4th when project „Take a deep breath” will end.
During June 17th-30th the ”Take a deep breath” domes were in the enclosure of the Palace of Parliament, thus trying to get the authorities’ attention on the importance of air quality and on the need for measures that provide cleaner air in big cities.
”Take a deep breath” is equally addressed to the authorities. Within the project there will be round tables and consultations between decisional factors of central and local administration in order to identify solutions that ensure air quality protection. Envisioned aspects are the improvement of communication between authorities, the adoption and amendment of current legislation, the identification of administrative measures, public communication and education.
