This is were I live. 96 apartments intended for students and a nursery school housed in the same building body? That is urban planning Stockholm 2020. Please see: The City for reference.

Cleanest City In The World?

September 5th, 2020 Comments off

It used to be and was known as an extremely clean city: Håll Sverige Rent.

The Foundation was founded in 1983 by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and the company Returpack. Its origins, however, is in the Keep Nature Tidy campaign that was launched in 1963 by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation. The Foundation logotype was introduced at this time: the spruce forest reflected in a lake – a symbol for clean water and unspoiled nature.

However, that’s definitely not the case today. Unfortunately (it being my home town and all) there are so many things (maybe too many) that are not true about Stockholm any more.

There’s a lot to be said about this and I have many times before: history and education are key.

The “why” and the “what”. I was taught to throw my litter in a bin or keep it until one was found (which usually didn’t take that long). I was taught to bring all of my trash from the: park, woods, playing field, cinema, metro, bus, walkway, residential area, front door, school yard, table (not excluding my room) or any public area and bin it.

In order for it to be as I originally found it.

It is that the same principle applies to everything in my and any other society. As in a fundamental understanding of Democracy. There are: rights and obligations; individuality and equality; freedom and responsibility.

Point being? You need to learn these things and some one needs to teach you these things. Over, over and over again.

Not related. Yet, pictured again… D’où Je Viens XXVIII.

Yes, I almost forgot… the original observation was all of the garbage (æ) was behind the electrical cabinets. None of it was on the pavement or in the street. What you don’t see does not exist and/or will disappear. Kind of playing peek-a-boo with a small child. Now you see me, now you don’t.

That being said there are no litter bins to be seen for many meters, so maybe people in general like it tidy after all (if the trash is hidden and out-of-sight)?

That is…

HK is no more… 2020-06-30 23:00 (GMT+8)?

“- They’ll never actually do that… because they can not afford doing that.”

However, they did do exactly that on the 30th July 2020. A cautious estimation a week in was that about 600 000 were suspected of having broken the (secret) law before it was instated.

The law will also apply to non-permanent residents and people “from outside [Hong Kong]… who are not permanent residents of Hong Kong”.

Please read the book(s) and try to remember the date. Because it is: business as per usual.

Turtle Wax, Plastic Padding, Karlssons klister, RX lim and Biltema… would fix anything/everything in the early 70’s. Sitting on a quintessentially period 1970’s brown footstool. You betta’ believe that!

What ever happened the instant before someone decided “- I’m not wearing these shoes no more this day/night!”. What happened after they were left behind? I always wonder…
