Abstract: This paper reviews observations and theory regarding the interaction between massive stars in open clusters and OB associations and the interstellar medium. The results of a systematic study of the gas and dust surrounding a large sample of open clusters are described. Different models for the bubbles blown by stellar winds of O-type stars are discussed, and the effects of subsequent supernova are investigated. The effects of correlated supernovae on the morphology of the interstellar gas and on the communication of the disk with the halo of a galaxy are presented.
