Green HSE in Search of Abandoned Mini Park to Clean Up

Green HSE, a student environmental club, is taking part in the upcoming Moscow Flower Show, an international festival of gardens and flowers. As part of the HSE project ‘A University Open to the City’, students will give a presentation on mini parks, the goal of which is to revitalize one of Moscow’s abandoned mini parks or courtyards.

‘On July 1 and 2 at the Moscow Flower Show in the Muzeon Art Park, Moscow residents will be able to place flags on a big map of the city to indicate the places they believe need revitalization’, said Sofia Malakhova, director of Green HSE. ‘These can be mini parks, courtyards, or barren land. At the end of the festival, we will check the information and determine which of these places can be set aside for HSE to work on landscaping. We will choose one site and focus our efforts on that. Of course, information on the other sites won’t go to waste – we’ll send residents’ comments to the appropriate authorities’.

The plan is for students to rehabilitate a site in the spring of 2016 using landscaping projects created by students in the HSE Faculty of Communications, Media and Design
