Our Foundation in cooperation with the Muncipal Public Library in Miedziana Góra organized a joint celebration of the World Earth Day 2022. Due to the fact that the Laskowa Mine is located in Miedziana Góra – belonging to the Świętokrzyskie Mines of Mineral Resources, we invited children living or attending schools there to participate in the “Green Mine” art contest.
As part of the contest, we organized meetings with miners in all schools located in Miedziana Góra. Our miners introduced the children to the subject of the work in an open-pit mine and of the changes that our company is planning to introduce in order to become a “green mine”.
Then, children were asked to create artwork entitled “The Green Mine”. All participants who submitted their works were rewarded with the possibility of planting their trees with a nameplate.
The trees were planted on April 28, 2022 at the playground in Ćmińsk.
As part of the campaign, we planted 51 trees, i.a. birch trees, ornamental apple trees, saskatoons, quinces, maple trees, linden trees, hawthorn trees, whitebeams and mulberries. As part of the event, the head of the commune of Miedziana Góra and representatives of the Świętokrzyskie Mines of Mineral Resources also planted their trees.
The “Green Mine” campaign was one of the projects within the framework of corporate social responsibility (CSR) implemented at the ŚKSM. The initiative was directed primarily to the local communities where the company conducts its business activity. The tree planting campaign was aimed at building pro-ecological attitudes among children and adolescents.
