The Tereblya river is the main water artery of the Tereblia Valley. Within the framework of the Synevyr National Nature Park (NNP), four large settlements are located on its banks, so often unconscious citizens throw garbage into this water reservoir. All living beings need clean water for a healthy life, so caring for water reservoirs should be important to each of us. In Synevyrska UTC was held an environmental campaign “Let’s make Tereblya cleaner” in order to make it a priority not only to environmentalists but also for the local population and to protect and improve the condition of rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water, rational use of their resources, increase environmental and legal awareness of citizens on water protection.

Lyubov Grechyn, a specialist in the Department of Ecological and Educational work of Synevyr NNP, and Ivanna Polazhynets, a teacher of Synevyr Secondary school with the involvement of young people held practical activities near the Tereblia River. During the campaign, the state of reservoirs was studied, and all garbage was collected on its banks. Everyone sincerely hopes that in the future the population will be more environmentally conscious and will not litter. Promoting the ideas of careful treatment of rivers and lakes, their protection, studying the basic provisions of the Water Code of Ukraine, and bringing good examples of water use – all confirm the environmental worldview and help to improve the environmental culture of locals.

The event was held in cooperation with the Interreligious and Environmental Civil Forum of Eastern Europe (IRCEF, headed by Alexander Bokotey) on the project “Responsibility for Creation and Women of the Carpathians” implemented by IRCEF in cooperation with partnership support of the Archdiocese of Bamberg (Erzbistum Bamberg), the Diocese of Würzburg (Bistum Würzburg) and Renovabis (Organization for Assistance to Eastern Europe from the Catholic Church in Germany).
