Panama: Corporate Citizenship Activities
Beach Cleaning activity
Panasonic Latin America continues supporting Green activities as part of the ecological vision of the company, this time in Panama a volunteer group of Panasonic Staff with their families and friends collaborated in a worldwide beach cleaning day to preserve the oceans. In a rainy morning the Panasonic team was armed with gloves and bags to collect the garbage on the coast, in coordination with the ecological institution ANCON. 37% of the collected garbage was plastic bottle (PET) and at the end of the day we collected 3,134 pounds of plastic garbage. This material will be recycling. Year after year Panasonic Panama participates in this activity and supporting the environment. One more time Panasonic Panama helps the planet with an ecological activity.
A New way of teaching, through the project Pro Escuela
Also Panasonic Panama continues with its plan of social responsibility, this time supporting the project Pro-Escuela, which provides orientation for leaders teachers to improve their teaching techniques, which consequent helps the students in their schools. Pro Escuela offers educational tours to Ecological Reserves (with expenses paid) and also a measurement of educational quality at the beginning and end of the year. This time we visit Barro Colorado Ecological Reserve, the largest forested island in the Panama Canal, where you can find a biological research station of international renown. During the visit to Barro Colorado teachers were able to get first hand contact with the animals and plants of the place, as well as received valuable information from the guides assigned. With this initiative of Panasonic, the teachers receive materials to work, they are trained and advised throughout the year, to bring a new efficient educational style.
