The ecological days between September 21 and 22, 2015, and September 26, 2015, represented a significant moment of community involvement and environmental awareness in Iglesias, thanks to the commitment of the Trevessu association and other local organizations.
On September 21 and 22, members of Trevessu initiated a cleaning action in the areas adjacent to the Salvaterra Castle in Iglesias. This activity, characterized by its simplicity and not having required expenses for the association, saw significant participation from three founding members and four volunteers, who subsequently became members of the association. The event demonstrated the effectiveness of environmental cleaning initiatives based on volunteerism and local engagement, highlighting how even small gestures can have a significant impact on the conservation and enhancement of historical and cultural heritage.
On September 26, the association took part in the “Clean Up the World” event, organized by Legambiente in collaboration with the Iglesias municipal administration. This initiative, which also involved other volunteer associations, focused on the environmental requalification of the Buon Cammino hill. Participants received the necessary materials and information for waste collection, highlighting the importance of collaboration between local authorities, associations, and citizens for the protection and enhancement of the environment. The media resonance of the event was remarkable, receiving widespread appreciation from the local community, a sign of the growing environmental awareness and the importance of civic engagement in maintaining the beauty and cleanliness of public spaces.
These initiatives had a significant impact not only on the local environment but also on the community of Iglesias. They promoted awareness of environmental issues and strengthened the sense of belonging and civic responsibility. Trevessu's experience shows how the joint commitment of citizens, associations, and administrations can translate into concrete actions for environmental and social improvement, creating a model of collaboration that can be replicated in other local realities. The cleaning and requalification of significant places like Salvaterra Castle and Buon Cammino hill not only improve the physical appearance of these areas but also strengthen the bond between citizens and their cultural and natural heritage.
