This day was undoubtedly a precious opportunity to highlight the importance of land maintenance and environmental care, to practice simple gestures capable of arousing greater daily responsibility and avoiding habits that damage the environment and the people who live there. . To demonstrate that a change of pace is needed, the large amount of abandoned waste that was collected during the regional initiative of Fai Cisl and the various maintenance and care activities of various spaces and green areas.

With this initiative – concludes the Secretary General of Fai Cisl Calabria – our region now has cleaner and more cared for areas and landscapes. But there is certainly a need not only for greater individual responsibility, effective information and good examples: interventions and investments in favor of the environment and human protection are also needed, actions to sensitize the various generations, to safeguard landscapes and beautiful sea areas and of mountains in a land like Calabria, which boasts an extraordinary landscape and naturalistic heritage appreciated by all, but not in the same way respected ».
