The Land Use Project of Technical University of Košice, Faculty of Economics

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

Land use project opts to achieve reflection in the near by areas used for relaxation and entertainment. The cultivation, restoration and reuse of land is everyday activity, which is often taken for granted. The aim is to get community together to try to contribute to the improvement of quality of life.

ACTIVITIES

This is a weekend training/visit including practical outcomes in se-lected traditional craft (e.g. carving, pottery...). The area selected for the training and visit depends on applicants` preferences. We come up with several options of lands, where we expect to reach the goals of the project. Main activities include:

  • observation, reflections and reactions linked with the needs identi-fied in a given area (e.g. function and form of some old and new buildings in locality of High Tatra - Stary Smokovec);
  • applying the crafts and skills in the area, e.g. cleaning, planting new plants and installing the outcomes of craftsmanship into the area;
  • quick survey on the spot about the result achieved in the area; obtaining a feedback from users of the area visited and culti-vated, restored and reused..

THIS EXPERIENCE WILL ALLOW YOU TO:

  • Be active in the community, an opportunity for get to-gether for reasons of environ-ment.
  • Acquire new skills in traditional craft and see them installed in the nature.
  • Have a say in what is going on in the neighborhood.
