Calling neighbours, politicians and partners who are concerned about the rubbish problem in Balsall Heath!

Join Cristina from Cleanascene Balsall Heath on Wednesday 19th November 2014 (World Toilet Day) at 6pm for a discussion regarding the litter problem in Balsall Heath and updates on future plans for the Cleanascene Project. Entry is free.

The talk will take place in Ort Cafe, 500-504 Moseley Road, Balsall Heath, Birmingham B12 9AH and is accessible for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility. There are step-free toilets in the building.

Cleanascene shares World Toilet Organisation (WTO)'s core beliefs: “better lives, bigger dreams”. WTO understands that the solution to the problem is not just about providing access to adequate, clean sanitation – it's also about giving people back their dignity, providing comfort, improving lives and offering empowerment so that they can strive for a brighter future.

Balsall Heath is part of a developed country, where neighbours have access to clean sanitation. However, the neighbourhood's general waste management is far from adequate. The neighbours' negligent behaviour in dealing with their household waste only aggravates the issue caused by a poor waste management across services.

Cleanascene, like WTO, believes that the solution comes through education. After our unsuccessful bid to work with Balsall Heath's primary schools, Cleanascene doesn't feel defeated. We are preparing another project that involves our neighbours, our streets and a big dream of a clean Balsall Heath.

Please join us to discuss, share experiences and put forward your own ideas about what needs to be done.Cleanascene calls for neighbours, politicians and partners who are concerned about the rubbish problem in Balsall Heath.
