City of Pécs - Hungary: graffiti free school program

The appearance of graffiti on the walls of city buildings means more and more defacing the landscape. The “Graffiti-free school” program tries to prevent the damage by providing information and raising awareness among the youngest age group possible: the infants and primary students of the educational institute in the city centre.

Focus the attention to the culpability of creating graffiti

In the framework of the project a small feature film was made which presented the creation of graffiti as a culpable action. With the usage of this film, forums were organized for the older students of primary schools of the city centre. In addition, this film was broadcasted in the local media. The most important element of the programme is to focus the attention to the culpability of creating graffiti among the children who are often taking part in this activity. In order to raise the awareness workshops as an extracurricular activity will also be organized aiming at the removal of the graffiti from the schools. Furthermore, spreading information on this kind of crime prevention and designating legal walls in the educational institutions is very important too.
