Projekt NonHazCity

Hazardous substances in our everyday life? We live in constant contact with them almost everywhere, no matter if through clothes, furniture, technical gadgets, packaging, laundry or cosmetics as well as on the job, in offices, in hair salons or hotels.

With our Interreg Baltic Sea Region Projekt “NonHazCity – Innovative management solutions for minimizing emissions of hazardous substances from urban areas in the Baltic Sea area” we seek to identify those dangerous substances. In the ongoing progress of the project, which started in March 2016, we provided information materials for different focus groups namely consumers, municipalities, and companies. Furthermore, we were present in schools, on events like neighbourhood celebrations or the climate week, in offices or private households to point out the dangers of chemicals for our own health and the well-being of our environment.

In future, we want to evolve the project with new ideas and approaches in follow-up projects.
