Message from our Representative
Citizens of Geneva and you who live here, if you like Geneva, it’s time to react. Our city is beautiful and yet we face a quality of life that is deteriorating. The beauty and cleanliness of Geneva are in danger. And we are all concerned.
This is a real call that launches the association “Ma Ville Jardin”. With her and together, let us look around and redefine the “garden” framework in which we want to live and for which we must fight to secure the future of our children and the safety of all, especially the weakest and the most aged of us.
I have no legitimacy, except that of inhabitant of Geneva, which I share with you. So, we invite you to engage not with words, but with concrete actions.
So, join us on September 13-14, 2019 for the 3rd National Clean-Up Day!
Mrs F. Porta
Representative of Ma Ville Jardin
