Telenor donated park to Belgrade
Near Nebojša Tower, 1000 bamboo, lavender, cornel, jasmine seedlings planted
April 09, 2011 – Belgrade has a new park near the Nebojša Tower, owing to cooperation between Telenor, the Municipality of Stari grad, public greenery maintenance company Zelenilo Beograd, Secretariat for Environmental Protection of the City of Belgrade, and the Supernatural Movement. The park covers more than 400 square metres and has a solar lighting system and benches.
“We take care of the living environment in our everyday work, first of all in our immediate surroundings, thus contributing to raising environmental awareness. Our employees are acquiring a habit of recycling at business premises, and with such campaigns we wish to additionally motivate them to preserve the environment and provide a positive example for others,” says Sandra Štajner, Chief Corporate Communications Officer in Telenor.
In the park, located near the bike lane, visitors can take a break in the scent of lavender, surrounded by bamboo, cornel, liriodendron, Syrian rose, jasmine and other plants.
Telenor has expanded cooperation with the NGO sector through the partnership with the Supernatural Movement. The cooperation will be continued at the Supernatural festival marking the Earth Day in the Botanical Garden in Belgrade, on April 23.
First of 1000 seedlings in the zone of Donji grad have been planted by Vlade Divac, President of the Olympic Committee of Serbia, athletes, Telenor employees, Supernatural team, biology and ecology students from the Faculty of Biology, and Telenor’s business partners. Media support for the project has been provided by publishing company Ringier Axel Springer and RTV B92.
