SIBUR helped beautify a Perm park
21 august 2021
August saw Perm give out awards to participants of the Save and Multiply project, a brainchild of the Perm branch of the All-Russian Nature Conservation Society that had won a grant from the grant contest held under the auspices of SIBUR's social investment program, The Formula for Good Deeds.
The project is a follow-up to Serebryansky Park, the project that won the 2020 contest. As was the case the year before, the main goal of the project’s proponents was to raise the residents’ environmental awareness through various educational events and by means of growing an eco-volunteering movement in Perm.
The final event held at the Green Theater included an awards ceremony for the project’s most active participants and a mini-concert featuring performances by active members of the All-Russian Nature Conservation Society and local school students.
The project has already received proper recognition at the city level: Serebryansky Park was made part of the Green Ring, an area where a program of comprehensive improvement of the banks of Perm's small rivers is being carried out. The Green Ring is part of Perm-300, a large-scale project to celebrate the city's anniversary.
Environmental protection has always been and remains SIBUR's focus. We were happy to support the project that seeks to introduce a comprehensive approach to beautifying Serebryansky Park and the Danilikha River Valley with an emphasis on improving and nurturing environmental literacy and culture among residents of outlying areas, Tatiana Duregina, Advisor to Sibur-Khimprom’s General Director, noted in her opening remarks.
I really enjoyed being a part of the Save and Multiply project, since we learned a lot not only about our local nature but also about our environment in general and the living creatures that inhabit the Danilikha River, Evgeny Chashchin, a 6th grader from Perm's Secondary School 41 and an active project participant, shared his impressions of the project.
The Formula for Good Deeds, SIBUR's social investment program was launched on February 1, 2016 in all key cities where the company operates. It is being implemented across six focus areas covering all essential social sector domains: urban development, education and science, sports and healthy living, environmental protection, culture, and volunteering.
In 2016-2021, 781 projects in nineteen cities emerged as grant competitions’ winners. The grants’ funds have been used to repair and rebuild social facilities, improve and beautify parks and other public spaces, organize sports and mass-scale cultural events, equip school laboratories, and take other measures to improve the quality of life in the regions where the company operates.
