Ecology is today a very important subject in our lifestyle, in the context of sustainability.

Pollution has become a scourge and we must find solutions to counter it, but there is one type that doesn't have real and durable solution: the one caused by chewing gum. Chewing gum is present on many streets, on pavements, that is very annoying and damages the beauty of many places.

Our approach consists of learning how we can efficiently fight against chewing-gum pollution. We will see in the first part the effects of this pollution. Then, we will look for solutions to eliminate the gum pollution with examples of French and English cities which have worked on it. The problem of objectivity regarding cleanliness is also tackled: a street can be considered as dirty by certain people, but clean for others. And chewing gum, in comparison with other urban pollutions, such as dog "droppings", rubbish and cigarette butts, do not disturb the pedestrian traffic.

[...] However, no effective response was been found to deal with the scourge of thousands of discarded chewing gum on thrown on the floor before the mayor, Jean-Louis Fousseret visited the United Kingdom city linked with Besançon: Huddersfield Besançon's approach to strike the problem: In continuation of a strong focus based on awareness, accountability and civic reminder, the City of Besançon just equipped 27 bins of the Main Street bins bearing a block of 15 posters on which Besançon's citizens can stick their chewing gum.

Peripheral information on the anti-chewing-gum project To build this project, we passed through several steps: The idea, the research and the gathering of information on similar projects, the contact of cities and places where those projects were led and at least the contact with Nantes, the presentation of the project and the action during the "Semaine Evènement ISEG". [...]

[...] After the presentation, he declared that it could be a really interesting project but that we had to find more information about the cost of the bill, the localization, the communication and the target The "Semaine Evènement ISEG" For this event which took place from the 25 to the 27 of March, we have decided to present our project and the problem of the chewing gum pollution. On Tuesday and Thursday, we have presented it through different ways. panel to explain the problem, the different solutions found by Besançon and some English cities and our project for the city of Nantes.
