Context: 

In our area of Local Development Strategy there are 45 thousand inhabitants. The area is partly characterised by traditional agriculture and partly it is a small town with a historic downtown and rural areas with mostly dormitory town function (for people from Toruń). One of the greatest issues is a pollution, coming from agricultural production, means of transport, inappropriate waste management and use of heating units which do not meet environmental norms.
There have been promoted renewable energy sources for a last few years, eg network of solar panels on the residential and public buildings, LED illumination and aquisition of wind power. However, high cost of renewable sources of energy and a low level of environmental consciousness among inhabitants lead to marginalization of such pro-environmental actions. Hence, the necessity of actions in the field of environmental awareness and an increase of pro-environmental solutions which can reduce water, air and soil contamination, help in saving the energy, decrease the waste production and so on.
