Title: Model projects of sustainable development in the municipality of Hostetín
The model projects in Hostetín solve individual questions regarding the communal facilities and have the same ambition – to support the local economy, the quality of life and contribution to saving energy, climate and environmental protection. The projects are the result of the work of the municipal council in connection with the active work of the inhabitants, as well as the cooperation of charitable organisations. The connection of traditional (juice production, fruit drying) with modern elements (root clarification plants, solar collectors, the most modern systems of public energy saving lightening, biomass central heating, model passive house) ensures that the concept of sustainable development is presented, and can be used as a model and source of experience for other municipalities, institutions and individual persons.
