The main purpose of the project was to analyse public initiatives in Russian and US cities with adverse ecological situations (basically, in the centres of the chemical and nuclear industry). Within the framework of the project two research trips to Russia and the USA were organised. In the course of these trips, Russian and American sociologists, psychologists and ecological activists were able to share their experiences.
