Tetiana Bakotska: “Environmental journalism is a lifestyle rather than a way to earn a living”

“One of my fellow journalists asked them about the reason for doing this, surely it’s easier to just take the whole lot and throw it away. The Spaniards’ reply was that they could act no differently,” recalls Tetiana.

So, this sincere “we can act no differently” set the journalist thinking. Why are Ukrainians, in particular journalists, not ready to understand and accept this? What can be done to make them ready? It is clear that the only solution is to disseminate knowledge about successful practices from other countries and motivate Ukrainians to change their ways.
