This project is another step in the fight for the citizens of Skopje , the capital of the Republic . Macedonia , against the construction of buildings and usurpation of mountain water . This mountain is the lungs of the city and has been reforested many years since the previous political system . Many buildings that have sprouted crossed the line of permissible. Due to the nature of the mountain soil on few places, the soil began to descend, and one asphalt is cracked . In the constructed buildings many people have settled and with them they brought many cars and pollution has increased.
What locality or neighborhood will your project focus on?
Describe the specific population with whom you will be working.
The problem with usurpation and pollution in the City affects every citizen of the city , especially those living in Vodno Municipality . In this neighborhood before they a[prove only to live the most deserving citizens . Over this neighborhood today is built another settlement and there is danger of slipping on the soil . For this mountain scientific studies had been made and they determined that the mountain can not stand large buildings due to landslides . Therefore it acceded to afforestation . But this government consistently wants to make an exclusive neighborhood that its members will accommodate. Pollution every year is higher in Skopje. One part of this mountain gives the peace that reigned here for years . There is a risk the city to lose the only place with trees and clean air.
