Interactive monument "Rhythm of Baikal" will appear on the coast in early June. The composition in the form of a heart weighing 7 tons is planned to be installed in order to remind about the environmental problems of the lake. The heart of Baikal will appear in Listvyanka.
According to the author's idea, a beautiful monument will not only decorate the shore, but also help a good cause. It is planned that the composition, inside which special light bulbs are installed, will be able to be switched on and shine, but to switch it on you will need to send a pay message from your mobile phone. In this way collected money will be directed to the improvement of the village.
As noted by the initiator of the sculpture, the task was to establish an object that would be attractive for tourists and meet modern trends at the same time.
Meanwhile, there are still plenty of other environmental problems of Lake Baikal. As reported earlier by East-Teleinform, during last year's all-Russian eco-marathon En+ Group "360 minutes" volunteers took out from the lake in the area of Listvyanka a truck of various debris with scrap metal and household garbage: tires, anchor chain, nets, bottles, pots and other small items. About 9 cubic meters of garbage, which is much more than collected in Listvyanka earlier, was taken out for recycling and processing.
