Maribor Island and Leon Štukelj Square
The day of bare truth about climate change is coming. Be a superhero/ine and warn people about the environmental issues. The event will start at 10 a.m. and at 6 p.m. we will move together to the Leon Štukelj Square.Year 2059, somewhere in a small place by the river
Lovro: “Oh my, ever since I can remember I’ve been in the swimming suit and this bathrobe, it’s time to get a new one … “
Maja: “Grandama and grandpa told me that it wasn’t always this way and that they used to have seasons, even winter. Grandma had a closet full of clothes. Now the only thing you can wear is a swimming suit and a bathrobe over it. Without pools we couldn’t even handle the heat.”.
Lovro: “Whose fault is that? Who allowed global warming to the point where we have to suffer the heat?”
The heroes will gather the next Friday in August to save the Earth from global warming. We are looking for backup superheroines and superheroes because our world is in danger as it has never been before. Let the bathrobes take over Maribor! Let us show to the world that we care about the environemnt and the future. Future of the world depends on us, a small place in a small country, the people of Maribor. Let us, who care about the environment and the future, gather!
Come to the Maribor Island by foot, bike or a bus. In a bathrobe. Symbolically. If we don’t act now, we will have to wear bathrobes all year round. In the summer, we will use them to protect from the sun and in the winter they will offer us enough warmth when you will go out with your friends to the Poštna Street. But… Do you really want to wear bathrobe all year around? The Swiss claim that in the year 2050 the temperatures in Ljubljana will be 3.5°C higher. Virginia Beach in the middle of Slovenia, but without beach, without the sea. Something must happen!
We cannot affect the global warming ourselves but we do have an opportunity to warn about the small steps that every one of us can make. Recycle more, use bikes more often, spend less warm water, use energy-saving bulbs and plant a tree every now and then! Let’s not look for the excuses to be lazy, let’s warn with a bathrobe so we won’t have to wear it all the time in the neart future.
On Friday, 30th August, we will hang out in bathrobes at the swimming pools Maribor Island from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All the people in bathrobes have a free entry on that day. The more the merrier and the less warm water we use. Do you have to work then? No problem. Tell your co-workers that the 30th August is the firt Maribor Bathrobe Day and tell your boss that one of the company’s priorities is also taking care of environment and you bathrobe your day away in the office and then come to the swimming pool when you’re finished. At 6 p.m. bathrobe procession will move to the Leon Štukelj Square. There’s a rumor that even DJ will be in a bathrobe. Come and join us!
