ČISTO ŠKOFJELOŠKO

Project duration: July 1, 2023, to December 31, 2024

 

BRIEF DESCRIPTION:

Consumerism and the lifestyle habits of modern society are not directed towards reducing waste or more appropriate waste management. Therefore, in collaboration with stakeholders in the Škofja Loka area who are facing this issue, we will, through the project activities, raise awareness about the problem of waste quantity and encourage sorting, proper waste management, recycling, and their reuse.

We will focus on waste cooking oil, which too often ends up in drains and composts, yet a liter of improperly disposed oil can contaminate up to a million liters of drinking water. We will install 6 additional waste cooking oil collectors with sensors, thereby expanding the network of waste oil collectors in rural areas and increasing the amounts of collected waste oil. At the same time, as part of the zero waste initiatives in the municipalities of Gorenja vas – Poljane and Škofja Loka, we will reduce the amount of waste packaging at events by purchasing reusable cups.

We will also carry out procedures to include the municipality of Gorenja vas – Poljane in the network of zero waste municipalities, which currently connects 16 Slovenian municipalities.

 

ACTIVITIES (Phase 1 runs from July 1, 2023, to January 31, 2024, and Phase 2 from February 1, 2024, to December 31, 2024):

  • Media awareness campaigns on environmental protection and proper waste management
  • Installation of waste cooking oil collectors at 6 rural locations
  • Organization of workshops for children/youth on making candles from waste cooking oil
  • Publication of an informative brochure on the collection of waste cooking oil and environmental protection
  • Conducting 3 adult education sessions on the importance of collecting waste cooking oil
  • Purchase of reusable cups for the areas of the municipalities of Škofja Loka and Gorenja vas – Poljane
  • Presentation of the importance of collecting waste cooking oil, waste separation, or reducing the amount of waste at events in the Škofja Loka area

  • Activities for including the Municipality of Gorenja vas – Poljane in the zero-waste network (development of a zero-waste strategy)
  • Conducting workshops for event organizers – presenting examples of good practices from zero-waste event implementations

 

OBJECTIVES OF THE OPERATION:

  • Increased awareness among the residents of the LAS of the Škofja Loka hills regarding environmental protection, nature conservation, waste collection, recycling, and reuse.
  • Execution of activities for the gradual inclusion of an additional municipality in the LAS area - the municipality of Gorenja vas – Poljane into the network of zero-waste municipalities with the help of a zero-waste strategy.

Obljubita si zvestobo v ambientu kmečkega Dvorca Visoko

Dvorec Visoko je mogočno kmečko poslopje z več pridruženimi objekti na Visokem pri Poljanah v Poljanski dolini. Je eden izmed najpomembnejših arhitekturnih spomenikov pri nas, saj predstavlja stavbeni višek najbogatejših pripadnikov kmečkega sloja v drugi polovici 18. stoletja. Razglašen je za kulturni spomenik državnega pomena, z namenom, da se ohrani izvirno oblikovan prostor kot kulturna vrednota.
