Ecology Art Project
Through posters with educational messages on nature and environmental protection we have supported the Ekoris project of Ana and Klara Rusan.
The goal of the project is to raise awareness of sustainable development, protection of nature and the health of the community. To achieve their goal, the Rusan sisters have created posters which portray the ways and importance of recycling in an amusing way, thus prompting the people to adopt eco-friendly habits and leave a cleaner and healthier environment to future generations. The posters were created as digital drawings and conceptualized in a manner that each topic is covered in a certain colour, while portraying serious eco topics through humorous situations.
Additionally, employees are encouraged to carefully use office materials, recycle and use resources, such as drinking water and office paper, with awareness.
The employees of our Law Firm often participate in various charity races whose goal is to raise funds for different charitable causes.
We have taken part in the national campaign “Svako dijete treba obitelj” (Every Child Needs a Family), which included the charity run Mliječna staza (Milky Way) whose participation fees were collected to help the equipping of foster families.
We are part of the organization “Hanza trči” (Hanza Runs) where we actively participate in many activities such as: the race Zagrebački noćni cener whose last event was dedicated to combating drug addiction, the Zagreb Marathon, the Tough Mudder Urban 5K, the B2B RUN Zagreb, the GRAWE Night Marathon, the Sljeme Marathon, the “Petica za Milu” charity race and many others.
