Farmak Sponsors Two Social Eco-Projects in Shostka

On October 20-21, 2016, two environmental trainings were conducted in the Shostka town – a training session for active students ChystoFUN and a workshop for citizens – Development of Ecological Communities. Each event lasted two days. Farmak supported both educational projects.

The organizer of eco-projects was NGO “Let's do it, Ukraine!”. Pharmaceutical Company Farmak has become the title partner. Educational projects were held under the auspice of Shostka Municipal Council.

The trainings were held for both children and adults. Students appreciated the session in ecological consumption. Due to “background” workshops, children not only learned how to separate garbage, correctly deal with power, but also received an incredible pleasure. The project ChystoFUN was attended by over 60 students from 12 schools of Shostka. This project aims to develop a responsible attitude to the environment and improve children's skills of proper waste and power management.

Julia Markhel, President of the NGO “Let's do it, Ukraine!”:All schools in Shostka town received bins upon completion of the two-day training; they will be able to start the environmental consumption even today. We tried to make the training program ChystoFUN not only informative, but also interesting for children. Due to such projects, students realize their role in the environment protection; form their personal responsibility for their actions and consequences. Sustainability begins with you!”

Along with training for kids, Shostka hosted a training for local governments, communities, condominium, house managers, small and medium-sized businesses – Development of Ecological Communities. There, participants have learned how to save money through the proper waste management and observe the basic power management principles.

Vladyslav Strashnyi, Farmak Corporate Affairs Director: “We used to bring new technologies from abroad, where the environmental production is a top priority for each company. Being the environmental training partner, we expect that our experience and theoretical knowledge would make the community to use the knowledge learned in practice to save energy and correctly separate waste. Hope, Shostka will become one of the most environmentally friendly towns in Ukraine.”

Training sessions were moderated by specialists from all over Ukraine. According to organizers, this project has become the first step of Shostka towards clean, sustainable future.
