The Tepebasi Municipality, which values environment and famous for its environmental projects both in Turkey and in international arena, provide its energy need from sun. Municipal services building provides its %20 energy from solar panels and that makes it Eskisehir s first energy effective public building. On the other hand, it is a first in Turkey, via bidirectional counter; generated energy will be transmitted to network. Bidirectional counter transmits the energy, which comes from solar panels, to network and thereby consumption amount in the counter decreases. Sukurusu Implementation Center It is a paper recycling atelier, established to point out the importance of home wastes recycling with a distinctive way which is to capture people s attention on variable creations and crafts of post-consumer recycled handmade paper. Thus, visitors of Sukurusu in any age- are attracted by the result, and as well with the action of recycling.

4 Sukurusu Vehicle Two-part programme consists of two games: "Land Model Game" helps children to understand ecological issues and pollutions created by urbanization, and "Puzzle Game" is to comprehend what they can do in order to reduce environmental problems.

Trainees receive certificates, which are approved by Ministry of National Education, at the end of each course periods. Thirty different courses, which reach ten thousand trainees, are opened every year. Center of Natural Life We are in charge of all animals, which are named as street pets and used to live with people. For a healthy environment, we are regularly organizing check-ups for street pets and act as a mediator to find them homes to live. We host primary school students in a park in the center and have conversations about our animal friends. Hippotherapy Children, who are welcomed by our cute animal friends, visit our center with our veterinary experts.

Rainbow Cafes are established to improve these people s self-confidence. Disabled people have activities, such as photography, the art of marbling, folk dances and latin dances as well. Disabled People and City Life We are making arrangements for the city to eliminate obstacles since we believe that if disabled people are not included in the social life of the city, you cannot talk about development. Besides

5 the visual attractiveness of the city, we generate environmental factors to strengthen public health and social cohesion. Hobby Gardens With the help of hobby gardens, retired citizens spend their time with nature and also cultivate several products. On the other hand, disabled citizens are socialising and spending their time in the best way in these hobby gardens. Support to Amateur Sports Besides the power of professional billion-dollar-sport industry, we believe in amateur sports, which are in direct relations on healthy and quality living and also have more important power. That is the reason why we run together and sweat for same purposes. Blue Flag The firms with blue flags are the ones which serve in healthier and more hygienic conditions to our citizens. In these firms hygiene, quality management and environmental criteria are in the foreground and these firms respect to consumers rights and they are customer-oriented. The aim of preparing environmental criteria for firms is to create awareness on water usage, energy waste and waste management, which cause global climate change. Since 2010, 25 blue flags are given to the firms. Dustwomen Tepebasi Municipality is appreciated with its exemplary cleaning practises by the society just like its all other practises in the city. The municipality enables citizens to be more sensitive to cleanliness by giving the cleaning activity of the city center to women. Tradesmen give great support to this project. Dustwomen are working in İsmet İnonu Street and Kızılcıklı Mahmut Pehlivan Street, which are the city s common areas and have the heaviest traffic in the city. Eco-Show Eco-Show is a rhythm band and its group members are dustmen. Their instruments are at the same time their tools that they use while doing their jobs. Container, oar and rubbish bin, which are known as cleaning tools, turn into melodies with their rhythms. Summer Schools Primary school students are active in any sports they want with their expert trainers during summer. The way of building awareness on doing sports regularly and consciously is to have proper fields and competent trainers. Every year thousands of students are practicing on these summer schools.
