Plastic banned

Natural Resources Ministry plans to ban the use of plastic containers and packaging in protected areas.

«We are currently planning to ban the use of plastic dishes, to impose additional penalties for the use of a plastic disposable tableware in reserves and national parks", - quotes the "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" a source in the iinisterstve .

The initiative is actively supported in the Baikal State Nature Biosphere Reserve, "Reserved Baikal", the Sochi National Park. It is here that the ban could be introduced in the first place.

However, a complete ban on plastic packaging to enter, after all, impossible. According to the Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Minister Sergei Donskoi, so as not to hinder the development of entrepreneurial activity. At the same time responsible manufacturers have gradually themselves gradually moving to biodegradable materials. After all, he said, 20 percent of kinds of plastic packaging can be replaced by reusable.

Natural Resources Ministry is considering a ban until the end of 2017.

However, the fight with the plastic on the territory of protected areas before the state began to volunteer enthusiasts. In particular draft example is "360 minutes" by the company En Plus. Thousands of volunteers collected hundreds of KAMAZ garbage from the territories of natural parks. We started with the lake, but the geography of work is constantly expanding. Increasingly, without waiting for regulations, large companies and individuals take responsibility for what happens with the nature around them.

Boss “Moose Island”, a monument at the NRU MSUCE

In Tatyana's Day, January 25, in the territory of the Moscow State University of Civil Engineering came elk. And although he is not real, but from a special alloy - it is very awaited, and to his "visit" is ready. Now, the university has an informal, very recognizable character, and all the inhabitants of the area - a reminder that in some beautiful place they live. It should be noted that elk have put the university is no accident - it is very close to "Elk Island" National Park. Old-timers say that before the moose are often left on the territory of the university, and often they can be seen at the end of winter - hunger drove them there, where they are fed regularly .

Fortunately, even in a noisy metropolis, there are places where people can get in touch with nature, but this contact must be careful. The new symbol of the university and recalls that, too.

Elk are not installed on a pedestal - the new owner of the territory can freely come and rub the ear or nose - always - good luck !

We will go some way? The Ministry of Economic Development discussed the spatial development of the draft Strategy

On January 20, Suzdal, officials of the Ministry of Economic Development discussed the project spatial development Strategy of the Russian Federation until 2030 , prepared by the Ministry of Economic development. The document defines priority areas in this sense - the Far East, North Caucasus, Kaliningrad region, Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, as well as the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation
.  Draft Spatial Development Strategy of the Russian Federation has been developed in response to 172-FZ "On the strategic planning in the Russian Federation." Its appearance was a lot of prerequisites, both external and internal. The latter include the absence of a stable population growth, its aging, reducing the proportion of economically active young people. Situation is aggravated by the concentration of the economically active population in the metropolitan areas of the country, as well as differences in the socio-economic development of Russian regions.
 The most-actively developing today - Central Federal District. The population in it from 1990 to 2014 increased from 25.7% (of the total population in the country) to 26.6%. Gross regional product grew 24.6% to 35.3% in 1990, in 2014 - leading figures "Izvestia". But the most disadvantaged regions - is the Far East. The population there decreased from 5.4% to 4.2%, the gross regional product - from 6.1% to 5.5%. In addition, the steadily decreasing number of small towns and villages.
 The authors say the need for "the development of metropolitan areas and their systems as centers of rapid economic growth", "improvement of the system of settlement", "development of a network of territorially-industrial clusters, focused on high-tech production».
 Among the main objectives of the strategy is called the creation of competitive macro-capable, implementing long-term projects of interregional cooperation, providing specialized synergy in terms of the regional economy.
 The strategy offers three scenarios for spatial development. The first involves the prolongation of the existing model of spatial development - that is, in fact, a further concentration of population in the country's center and in the most prosperous regions and cities, the growth of the polarization between the growing and depressed regions. In turn, the growth of the competitive scenario is the formation of regional leaders and major agglomerations of the developed system of transport communications.
 The third scenario is a diversified spatial growth based on the assumption that each region is unique in terms of not only the economy, but also human capital, the environment and culture. The scenario assumes that the spatial development determined the growth based on domestic sources for each region, as well as effective interaction between them.

With regard to the opinions of authoritative experts, todirektor regional program of the Independent Institute of Social Policy Natalya Zubarevich believes that it is premature to discuss the document
.  - Macro-regions dragged from concept to concept. What is it for? This idea appeared in mid zero. But we have a federal district. A raised flag on the agglomeration? What is it? Why are they 22? Well, so wanted. I want to emphasize that the papers to life is not affected. No money - again. Instruments that are used do not give much effect - two. As part of the vertically - and this is important in our political system - to ensure that the regions themselves would like to do something, it is not so simple. Simply go to the Ministry of Finance and ask for money - quoted economist "Izvestia". The expert also noted that the scenarios are not counted, not developed and are not attached to the rest of the strategy. However, according to Zubarevich it is "normal for a semi-finished product." The second claim - it has a very weak population distribution section that is happening in the resettlement, with the cities .

General Director of "Urbanik" Anton Finogenov also not in favor of enlargement of regions
.  - Macro-regions - a topic that requires serious consideration. I still belong to it skeptically. We have a federal district, and there are some questions about the effectiveness of their operation. Because they are, for example, administrative functionality, but they do not have the budget functional. So, to say that the federal district the most widely used, is not necessary. Based on this question. And why not use as widely as possible the management capacity of federal districts in development planning, to create some other additional level, in addition to the federal districts? This question is clearly an inter-agency, it should be discussed not only within the Ministry of Economy. It is fundamental and we are only at the beginning of the path for his consideration - says Finogenov .

In our opinion, it is extremely important to create a strategy for balanced development of the Russian regions and responsible tourism is a unifying format that allows you to engage in the process of various ministries and agencies, business, educational and cultural institutions for the purpose of Creating a comfortable and liveable space. Areas filled with a unique sense, and tourism has become the glue that sticks together, united, launches creative processes and recalls the responsibility of all participants in the process of development of territories. Thus, the COT must become part of the Strategy of spatial development of the Russian Federation, as it helps to link different entities.
