Maybe it is just that I am more observant when reading in my native tongue, but I think that the environment is being treated quite differently here than in Sweden. Swedish media are full of advice on how you make an ecologic dinner and travel in responsible ways.
In Catalonia, the negative effects of climate change are obvious. For example, natural reservoirs are now at so low levels that Barcelona might soon need to bring in water in huge tanker ships. In spite of that, environmental issues seem to be something for politicians to solve.
For this reason, a full-page advertisement in the latest Diari de Vilanova came as a positive surprise. It was a list of concrete measures on how we all can save water. True, the advertisement was placed by the ajuntament of Sant Pere de Ribes, but I have a feeling that the recommendations work in Vilanova as well.
