Fundraiser for Symbiosis project
Actor: Puolala school, city of Turku ● Year: 2015 ● Address: Kauppiaskatu 14, Turku, Finland
In our comprehensive school (from 1st to 9th grade) we raised with collection boxes and bank transfers little more than EUR 1000 for the Symbiosis sculpture project of the Protection Fund for the Archipelago Sea.
Besides the fundraising there were experts visiting the school giving presentations of the Baltic Sea and how to protect it. Also circulating set of the Gulf of Finland exhibition was present for both the lower and upper gardes. The pupils participated in various eco challenges and made sea themed art. The homes of the pupils were informed of the project and it was presented in the annual report of the school.
The funds gathered for the Symbiosis sculpture project are used to protect the Archipelago Sea. The school will get its own name plate to the sculpture that is designed by famous Finnish artist Stefan Lindfors. Awareness of both pupils and personnel of the school on the state of the Baltic Sea is increased, also hopefully the willigness to act for the sea.
