Poems for sustainability

November 2019 – A transition towards global sustainability starts locally. It will involve new forms of social engagement, democracy and local cohesion. Poems in the public environment contribute to less anonymous neighbourhoods and to community building on a neighbourhood level. SPA Sustainability contributes to poems on private walls in the community of Oegstgeest, Netherlands, that will form a walking route through the village. The project is carried out as “Oegstgeester Muurgedichten Actiecomit√© (OMA)” for Cultuurfonds Oegstgeest and also involves a poetry competition for primary school pupils in the village.
