It must be the end to grab a smoke on the copenhagen beaches in the good weather.
In any case, if it is to Sisse Marie Welling (SF), which is health and omsorgsborgmester in Copenhagen. She will stop smoking on the beaches for the benefit of non-smokers and families with children.
the Beaches are one of the places where many families come with their children. We want a smoke-free generation, and if it is to succeed, we need to create some smoke-free environments for our children.
- It is really important that when families with children are on an excursion, so is it not with passive smoking, by the neighbor smoking the little children up in his head, she says.
Small children should not have the perception that cigarettes belong to on the beach, she thinks.
Wherefore, Sisse Marie Welling a proposal in the city council to make the beaches smoke free.
If adopted by a majority, it can lead to that be put up signs that call for people dropping all on the beach. Municipalities may not impose an outright ban, points out the mayor.
- We must make recommendations, as we have done on our playgrounds for barely ten years ago. And it has worked.
the Recommendation to drop smoke on the playgrounds came in 2013.
- In the same way, we hope that it can succeed on our beaches, if we with signage and friendly recommendations calls for the people to let the packet be in the bag, she says.
Sundhedsborgmesteren expect that citizens will approve the initiative to create more smoke-free environments in the municipality.
- I think, that very many will be happy with it, says Sisse Marie Welling.
