Excursion on the roof (prof. Berg is in the centre)

This time broadcast was mainly about the possibilities of the gardening on roofs of the city.  There were an excursion for Russian and Swedish students to the unique roof garden in St. Petersburg situated at Pulkovskaya st., 9 k.2, near Zvezdnaya metro station. Swedish students were led by prof. Berg from University Uppsala, who is the founder of Sustainable Town Planning master course for The Baltic University A Regional Network.

I supposed to take an interview with prof. Berg, but due to issues with TV-team and professor’s hour late arrival the plan was ruined. But still we were able to visit this garden on the roof. By the way, the professor was in the cowboy hat – I’ve never seen any professor in a cowboy hat before)))

There are some clickable pictures here, they will demonstrate how this garden looks like.

Back to the broadcast. The guest of the studio was an expert in land management related legislation and a director of something))) Unfortunately I don’t remember his name, but I wish I wrote it down. This guy will be the head of the Committee for Environmental Safety and Natural Resources in two or three month (of course he will – he is a member of talent pool and has a sighed recommendation from Gryzlov himself).

The committee “suffer” a loss of its top management due to corruption scandals (one was caught by the hand violating the law and another wasn’t able to explain how it is possible that his expenditures are far above his incomes). I’m glad that corruptionists were banished, because this committee was the worst place to visit. I know it for sure: they’ve emptied a shit tank on me… twice. The last time I was there, Delarov (the one who wasn’t able to explain expenditures) tried to extort money from me for the information on illegal dumping in Leningrad region.

Hope the committee will have a brighter future now.
