How do we make Suceava cleaner?
Thu, 02 Jun 2022
On the 28th of May, ASSIST Software organized a cleaning activity on the outskirts of Suceava. Our colleagues and their families wanted to prove once again that cleaner surroundings benefit entire communities.
We asked our colleagues to #GoGreener, and the results did not disappoint. As a company, we strive to do more and more for the environment each year. Nature is our uncontested friend.
We love hiking, biking, mountain running, and particularly long walks in the park. However, to be able to enjoy the plethora of advantages of living in a green community, we need to put in the work. Thus, last weekend, we took on the challenge of cleaning the Zamca Forest, a place where nature and blocks of flats casually mingle, creating a “border” between the close towns of Suceava and Scheia.
After receiving information that the area had been neglected and full of trash, we took it upon ourselves to start the cleaning process and help preserve its beauty. To be more effective, we invited USV students to help us, and we coordinated the activity together with Lucian Pascut, Ph.D. at the Forestry Faculty at USV.
But helping the environment doesn’t imply only cleaning areas that need immediate attention. It’s also important to understand the role that education plays in shaping the future of our green cities. Therefore, we invited 17 children from the St. Leontius of Rădăuți Children’s Settlement to join us in this initiative and learn about environmental friendliness and how to make the world a better place to live in.
By the time we finished the clean-up, we had filled 50 bags with all sorts of trash people had left in the woods.
In total, approximately 70 people participated in the cleaning activity, a significant increase from last year when we cleaned the Ponoare Meadow and even 2019 when we took part in the #tashtag challenge by cleaning the Suceava riverbank.
We are proud of our achievement, and we hope to continue bringing positive change in today’s society. Would you like to join us?
