The European Youth Capital transforms Grigorescu Beach
The strategic project organized by the European Youth Capital, Day 15, has as main purpose the reactivation of public spaces, by setting up an example. The Someş River’s Bank has been integrated in Day 15 series since the beginning and we are glad to have arrived at the point in which we are able to make this announcement.
In July, the Cluj 2015 team will rearrange the Grigorescu Beach for Day 15’s Event - Beach Party!
Saturday, 20th of July, the city of Cluj will not sleep starting from 10am until 10pm, the citizens of Cluj will have the chance to experience a relaxing outdoor party which will also bring energy and joy, in an area that requires more attention and involvement from our part, as a local community - The Grigorescu Beach.
The Day 15 team, throughout the monthly established projects during the year of the European Youth Capital, wants to show that public spaces can become more pleasant and useful through the involvement of the community.
In this way, 8 areas around the city that can be transformed and reutilized were pointed out through the Day 15 March series, taking into consideration the fact that most of them were simply forgotten in our daily routines. The Grigorescu Beach was one of this places (HERE you can see all the photos of the identified areas), and now we refocus on this specific areas to demonstrate that together we can change this city.
We wish for this party to be a starting point, a message for the community and many others, to cooperate more with each other for our surrounding so that we can all enjoy them.
The location that will be transformed, with the occasion of the Day 15 June Edition, it includes both sandy and green areas.
The Beach Party will take place will take place on a surface of over 4.500 m2.
