Idea

Idea pitch

The city of Pyrzyce does not have a place where, in an organized and importantly safe way, animal keepers can spend their free time. Our idea was born after observing residents walking around sports grounds with their pets, and together with the Center for Sports and Recreation we came up with the project "ZWIERZOPARK", which we could realize in the currently degraded area - restore the area of the local community and thus do something cool unique.

Where will your project idea take place?

PYRZYCE, WOJEWÓDZTWO ZACHODNIOPOMORSKIE, POLSKA

What is the specific societal challenge faced by this region?

WE INTEND TO SHOW THAT, DESPITE OUR MAIN GOAL OF STRENGTHENING HUMAN PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT, WE DO NOT PASS INDIFFERENTLY TO THE NEEDS OF ANIMALS AND THEIR CARERS, THAT LIFE IS ABOUT BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ALL OF US, AND BUILDING PLACES LIKE THE 'ANIMAL PARK' STRENGTHENS THE ROLE OF CITIZENS IN PUBLIC SPACE. WE ARE GOING TO INVOLVE BOTH ANIMAL WELFARE ADVOCATES AND OPPONENTS IN THE PROJECT, SHOWING THAT WE CAN FIND COMMON SPACES FOR MEETINGS, LEISURE ACTIVITIES.

Who are you doing it for?

WE DO THIS FOR RESIDENTS OF PYRZYCE MUNICIPALITY WHO OWN ANIMALS AND THEIR FAMILIES SO THAT THEY CAN SPEND THEIR TIME SAFELY AND PLEASANTLY. FOR ANIMAL AND ANIMAL KEEPERS AND OPPONENTS LIVING IN PYRZYCE TO SHOW THAT THERE IS ROOM FOR EVERYONE IN PUBLIC SPACE AND THUS STRENGTHEN THE MEANING OF CHANGE IN OUR ENVIRONMENT AGAINST SOCIAL EXCLUSION.

How do you plan to get there?

1. IN COOPERATION WITH THE CENTER FOR SPORTS AND RECREATION ALLOCATE THE AREA FOR THE PROJECT.
2. CARRY OUT THE GROUND WORK BECAUSE WITHOUT THEM WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RESTORE THE DEGRADED AREA OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY, WE NEED TO EXPORT DEBRIS AND OTHER WASTE THAT HAS BEEN THROWN THERE.
3. DEVELOPMENT OF THE RULES OF THE ANIMAL PARK.
4. FENCES, LIGHTING, SMALL ARCHITECTURE EQUIPMENT AND PUTTING INTO SERVICE SO THAT THE SPACE IS SAFE AND FULLY FUNCTIONAL.
5. CONDUCTING A MEDIA CAMPAIGN FOR THE PROJECT.

What are the expected results?

THE RESULT OF THE PROJECT WILL BE THE COMMISSIONING OF THE "ANIMAL PARK", WHICH WILL FIRSTLY RESTORE THE LOCAL COMMUNITY TO THE AREA CURRENTLY DEGRADED LOCATED IN THE CITY IN A BEAUTIFUL GREEN AREA ENCOURAGING WALKS, SECONDLY, IT WILL GIVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND TIME SAFELY AND ACTIVELY WITH CARERS AND THEIR ANIMALS, AND THIRDLY, IT WILL CONVINCE OPPONENTS OF KEEPING ANIMALS TO ACCEPT THOSE WHO HAVE ANIMALS AND ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEM, AND TOGETHER WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COMMON RESPECT FOR DIGNITY AND EQUAL TREATMENT IN PUBLIC SPACES OF ANIMALS.

How does your idea strengthen active citizenship at a local and community level?

DISPUTES OVER KEEPING ANIMALS BOIL DOWN MAINLY TO THE FACT THAT ANIMAL KEEPERS DO NOT HAVE PLACES WHERE THEY CAN SAFELY STAY WITH THEIR PETS, AND THEREFORE "LOOKING" FOR FREE URBAN SPACES ARE OFTEN PLAYGROUND SQUARES OR PARKS WHERE PARENTS WITH CHILDREN SPEND THEIR TIME, OR SENIORS WHO DO NOT HAVE ANIMALS, AND THERE IS CLEARLY A CONFLICT BETWEEN THESE GROUPS. OUR PROJECT MEETS EACH OF THESE GROUPS AND SHOWS THAT WE CAN LIVE TOGETHER.

Why is this idea important to you?

WE ARE A CLUB IN A SMALL TOWN AND PARTICIPATE IN THE PUBLIC LIFE OF OUR CITY NOT ONLY ON THE CANVAS OF SPORTS LIFE BUT ALSO SOCIAL LIFE, WE ARE AWARE OF THE RESPONSIBILITY IN BUILDING A CIVIC COMMUNITY, WE ARE VOLUNTEERS DEVOTING THEIR FREE TIME SO THAT OTHERS CAN ACTIVELY RERALIZE THEIR DREAMS. WE HAVE THE HUMAN POTENTIAL OF OPEN HEARTS FOR THE NEEDS OF OTHERS AND FOR ENRICHING PUBLIC SPACE AND PERMANENTLY BECAUSE FOR 60 YEARS WE HAVE BEEN PART OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY.
