Are we living in a new Tunisia?

Published

on

The past several weeks, there has been a raise of awareness and consciousness touching the people of Tunisia. The call for cleaning campaigns and the support for 619 has been all over the place. An unexpected wave that we didn’t see coming. Yet, is this a good indicator or just a usual trend bound to fade in the coming days? 

It goes without saying that 2019 was the year of democracy for Tunisians. For the first time people felt responsible and conscious of what is going around. Their civic spirit was at its peak as people were sharing  pictures of their blue fingers. After the new president’s announcement, the spirit of a better Tunisia was more than ever needed. People were repeating that a new president is not the only way for the betterment of our country but what we actually need is a new state of mind, a new mentality. 

With this thought in mind, people created pages on Facebook with posts that show how national consumerism is vital, how the cleanliness of places is important and how much we need to change our behavior. With a new alerted mind Tunisians responded to the call.

 The question to be asked is: Is this for the long term? It is true that nothing made me happier and prouder than seeing youngsters cleaning trash from our streets and stations. Nothing made me more joyful than seeing artworks everywhere. (Even though for future paintings, you should ask a specialist before doing anything). But, I still have that feeling of doubt. It does not take only a  number of people nor a day for a country to become better. It needs days and regular attentiveness for everyone. My hope is that this awareness goes beyond hashtags,Instagram stories and Facebook posts to become a way of life. A Tunisian’s way of life!

IntiGo : Peut-on dire fini les embouteillages ?

Published

on

Alors que les problèmes de trafic (dus à plusieurs facteurs, notamment les intempéries) s’imposent de plus en plus, une jeune société au nom d’IntiGo lance la première compagnie de Moto-Taxi en Tunisie.

En effet et comme son nom l’indique, le principe est simple : il s’agit d’un scooter taxi, qui sera mis à la disposition du client pour lui assurer un déplacement fluide à travers les embouteillages, le tout avec un prix compétitif comparé aux taxis et surtout ceux avec application.

La compagnie est actuellement en train de recruter des chauffeurs professionnels pour un lancement prévu en décembre.

Il est à noter que cette idée a déjà vu le jour depuis 2015 en Italie à quelques détails près et que son efficacité était au rendez-vous.
Espérons donc résoudre le problème des bouchons en Tunisie grâce à cette initiative.
