Before the painting competition entitled “Borusan Lojistik and Nature”, the children of employees working at Borusan Lojistik’s Bursa General Directorate Gemlik facilities watched a play specifically written for Borusan Lojistik and staged by the actors of Turnagöl theater called “Let’s Protect Nature”. The children and their families had great fun getting involved.
After the play, children from various age groups painted for an hour and a half. The competition was carried out under the guidance and supervision of art teachers from the Provincial Directorate of National Education. Themed around nature, the artwork was then judged by a jury of teachers on the same day.
The best paintings were then given a place in the Borusan Lojistik 2007 calendar. Noting that the painting competition has a positive effect on boosting children’s awareness regarding protection of the environment and nature, Borusan Lojistik Deputy General Manager İbrahim Dölen said the following;
“We place great importance on protecting the environment in the areas in which we operate and aim to fulfill our responsibilities in this regard.
