Citizen’s participation in countries social transformation, public ethics and understanding of togetherness as "US" instead of only "ME" is a strange phenomenon in Georgia. When actions to be taken and solidarity of citizens is vital, only small groups of people fight for justice. Hence, we have organized our group action in Tbilisi to acts as positive catalyst towards good citizenship practices currently, so scarce in lives of people, where during 70 years of Soviet regime state was only decision maker for whole society.
The purpose of the action was to find number of common/everyday citizens who are far from being self centered. People, who consider citizenship as HUGE responsibility to their people and to the entire world in general.
As we found these sunshine people, we have paisted their portraits on two visible walls in the capital city of Tbilisi. Action posters contained narrative part in the form of messages, underlining participants personal definitions and examples of good citizenship.
Our participants are chosen from various fields (defenders of human rights, minority rights, children, environment and ecology, historical architecture and monument preservation, culture, society, urbanism etc.)
We believe that, our group action stands as positively provocative example for good citizenship, togetherness, solidarity, definition of common urban space and thus, encourages citizen's participation in social transformation in Georgia, so to prevent degradation of core humanistic values.
