ST Industrial Group became the sponsor of the competition Ecology Through The Eyes Of Children
Ecology Through The Eyes Of Children is the annual event carried out by the Deputy Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg Viktor Lozechko. In 2015 the competition was attended by over 400 children from 5 to 14 years. The solemn awarding ceremony was held on June 2 in the building of the Legislative Assembly. The event was supported by Safe Technologies and public ecological organizations EkoVahta (eco-shift).
Today the space halls of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg is decorated with children’s artwork. The figures, animals, nature, favorite city, Mom and Dad, everything that makes the world of little competitors. And unfortunately garbage, smoking pipe factories, dirty lake in which fish become uncomfortable to live… Every picture is the living reflection of what is happening around, unbiased and honest children’s look at the environment.
The idea of the creative competition Ecology Through The Eyes Of Children appeared in 2013, dedicated to environmental protection. The response was massive: the drawings submitted for the contest were made by several hundred preschoolers, pupils and students. In 2015 447 children participated in the event. The results of the contest were announced by specially formed competition commission. The ceremony took place in a festive atmosphere of the White Hall of the Legislative Assembly. To an ovation of deputies, parents and friends of the contestants the winners received their awards: money certificates for the purchase of kids stuff, small bouquets and stick pencils.
‘We aim to support all these initiatives,’ executive director of the EkoVahta Alexei Maximov said. ‘Of course, such measures need help, and we are given the support. In particular, an environmentally responsible business, our partners such as Safe Technologies Industrial Group were not born yesterday. It gladly responded to the invitation to support the initiative of the competition, to make it more attractive, but also to switch to a higher level of clearance. Children are happy to take part, and we are confident that next year’s competition will be even larger and more interesting.’
