Wanting to raise a clean environment awareness, students from Fatih cleaned the streets of Fatih with brooms and dustpans. Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir shared this exemplary attitude of these children and joined them in their cleaning.

Municipality of Fatih has undertaken a significant project in order to raise a clearer environmental awareness in the future generations under the Environment and Cleaning Week activities. Under the "Delegates of Cleaning Project", 200 students cleaned the streets of Fatih with brooms and dustpans.

EXEMPLARY TREAT FROM MAYOR MUSTAFA DEMIR

Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir accompanied the cleaning works of little students. Starting from Vadide Pars Secondary School, Mayor Demir took the cleaning tools and cleaned the environment with the children street by street during the environment cleaning activity.

WE WANTED TO CREATE A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT AWARENESS

Mentioning that creating an environmental awareness is more important than keeping the city clean everyday with people, Mayor Mustafa Demir said, "We have developed this project in order to contribute to creating an awareness so the environment would not be polluted again. My opinion is that children are neither aware of their environment nor the street they live in. Because they are cleaned every day. Just like the cleaning made at home. However, today we did not clean five streets and avenues, we left them as they were. Firstly we wanted children to see how an uncleaned city looks like. Second, I think that if children clean the streets and avenues, then children who bend over to pick trash accompanied by their peers, the mayor and school managers would not attempt to throw garbage around".

MUNICIPALITIES ALLOCATE LARGE BUDGETS FOR CLEANING

Mentioning that municipalities allocate large budgets to cleaning, Mayor Demir said, "I don't think that someone picking a trash dropped by someone else would ever pollute the environment again. I don't think they would ever allow anyone to throw garbage around. I think the most practical way for creating an environmental awareness at home and in the surroundings is not just providing theoretical education, but providing practical training in the streets as well. In fact, almost 1 out of 4 of municipality budget is allocated to cleaning".
