Participants of the platform “Zmіsto” created motivational pedestrian crossings in Slovyansk [Donetsk oblast], Ukraine.
At the initiative of the platform Zmisto and with support of the municipal enterprise “water table” Slovyansk increased the number of pedestrian crossings in the city, according to 6262.com.ua [the City of Slovyansk’s website].
The pedestrian crossings are also decorated with motivating inscriptions: “You are your own country,” “Everything will be all right,” “Life is beautiful when it’s colorful” and others.
The plan is to paint a total of five such crosswalks in Slovyansk, at intersections in different parts of the city. All of the materials necessary to implement this initiative have been procured with grants from the US Agency for International Development – USAID.
