Luke Douglas-Home started to tackle the endemic problem of waste that he saw during his years of working for a Romanian NGO in 2015, following three years of reasearch. He formed the social enterprise Clear Public Space, with the aim to change behaviour through campaigns, project-focused awareness activities and business advisory service.
We have offices in UK and Romania, with a team of volunteers, consultants and advisers who coordinate, monitor and evaluate our projects and activities.
Managing Director CPSL
Luke was Executive Director of Mihai Eminescu Trust until 2005, when he suffered a catastrophic accident . He has made an amazing recovery, for which he is universally grateful to hospitals in Brasov, Bucharest and London. Thus, his emotional attachment to Romania. ”I received healthcare there, like few others – and few said I would be able to talk and walk, let alone think. Heathcare was the most important factor behind my remarkable recovery, apart from my wife Christina!” he says.
He likens running the initiatives to running the London Half Marathon, which he has done twice. “I have had to dig deep in both, and both require stamina and fortitude”.
