AmCham Supported Event: Plant a Tree in Maksimir

Date: September 16th, 2017

Time: 10:00 - 12:00

Place: Park Maksimir, Zagreb

The Scout Association of Croatia, with AmCham support, is organizing an ecological action on the occasion of the International Day of the Protection of the Ozone Layer. Therefore, on September 16, from 10 am to 12 pm, in Park Maksimir, in Zagreb, about three hundred oak peach seedlings will be planted. The meeting point for participants will be at main stage (left from the main walkway coming from main gate) at 9:30.
AmCham, as a socially responsible organization, is supporting community development projects, as well as ecological ones as this is the environment in which we all live and work. Namely, this year's date marks the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Montreal Protocol on ozone depleting substances. Protocol has been accepted by all United Nations member states, and thus contributed to the preservation of this important shield for our planet.

We will be very pleased if you could join us with families and, most importantly, your youngest family members because the Scouts want to emphasize that the struggle for nature and the preservation of the environment never ceases, but that each and every one of us, individuals and companies can make a contribution. Invitation is open to all employees of AmCham member companies.

This action is supported by Hrvatske šume that are donating the seedlings, Public institution “Maksimir” whose experts will help in planting the seedlings and by City of Zagreb – City Office of Agriculture and Forestry. Also, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy is invited and Scouts are also planning to cooperate with experts from Ministry on educational materials preparation. Leaflets will be distributed to the citizens who will be walking in one of the most beautiful Zagreb parks that Saturday.

The Scout Association of Croatia has numerous ecological activities through the year as part of their regular work with children and young people. The aim is to raise awareness among its members and citizens about the necessity of nature conservation, as well as the implementation of specific environmental protection steps in the local community.

We believe that you will recognize the importance of Scouts efforts and join this valuable social responsibility activity in Croatia.

We are looking forward to your arrival!
