Healthy Cities
of the Czech Republic

Another four Healthy City Forums took place in March

Healthy City Forum is a meeting where public representatives identify 10P - ten problems considered most burning in the location of their residence. The order of problems is consequently verified by public enquiries and then forwarded to the municipal, regional or city district representatives. Each meeting with the public checks, whether city, municipal or regional management dealt with the problems from the last Forum in appropriate manner. The citizens' interest gradually shifts to problems, whose solution is really lies within the authority of the given municipality or region.
