The "Our Yard" project is planned to be implemented in all Baku districts. In this regard, IDEA proposes to submit information and recommendations about the yards in Baku which are in need of improvement.
The main purpose of creating such sites is to ensure a healthy lifestyle for young people, strengthen their health as well as to provide good leisure activities.
The IDEA Public Union, established by Leyla Aliyeva on July 12, 2011, aims to promote public awareness on environmental issues and action, collaboration with the youth, promoting the education of environmental problems and finding proper solutions for them.
The public union calls upon each individual to care about the environment and to contribute to the ongoing efforts to thwart ecological problems.
