Summary of the project: 

​The project aimed to raise public awareness of the importance of the problem of polluted air in the City of Tuzla. For this purpose, a 120 m2 mural was painted in the Irac neighbourhood in Tuzla, with special 

photocatalytic paints. Photocatalytic paints help reduce smog, which is the result of the 

accumulation of pollutants in the atmosphere. By reducing pollutants, these colors contribute to the reduction of smog, which has a positive impact on human health and the environment, but the focus was not on the overall reduction of air pollution in Tuzla, but on pointing out this problem. 

The project included educational programs and workshops to inform citizens about the causes and 

consequences of air pollution and how they can contribute to reducing pollution. In addition, this project 

directs people to make changes in their daily lives to reduce the negative impact on the environment. The project can serve as a model for other cities that also face air pollution problems 

and encourage the spread of similar initiatives at the national or regional level.
