Awareness of the cittaslow network among students in Olsztyn and Gdańsk cities

Izabela Lewandowska , Adam Drzewicki , Jan Andrzej Wendt


This study is based on an analysis of a questionnaire answered by 400 students which aimed at demonstrating the awareness of the notion of Cittaslow. The questions pertained to issues connected with environmental protection, knowledge of national heritage, participation in cultural events, and ideas how to promote Cittaslow-networked towns better. The results show that the awareness of the Cittaslow movement among students is poor. Most respondents had not heard of Cittaslow cities before the survey. According to the distinguished subgroup of students living in Cittaslow cities, the most severe environmental problem was the air pollution caused by incineration of prohibited fuel materials in household furnaces. The respondents suggest that it would be desirable to build alternative energy installations, mainly solar power facilities, in or near Cittaslow cities.
