Title: Youth project to revitalize a brook in Germany
This project is interesting because it evolved from the initiative of the youth group of the volunteer fire department. Meanwhile the voluntary engagement is seen by authorities as supporting administrative nature conservation. Therefore the county bought property along the Staersbach so that the young firefighters can initiate further revitalization measures. Another positive aspect is that the revitalization of the brook could be carried out with minimum financial resources due to excellent cooperation, extensive public relations, contributions and volunteer work. Another reason for the cost effectiveness of the project is the snowball effect that ensued.
