Volunteer Day: A part of World Environment Day celebrations.
Over the years, ACCIONA Volunteer Day has inspired more than 900 of the company's employees to give sustainability workshops to close to 18,000 children across 11 countries, to teach them about climate change, efficient use of water and energy, and more.
On Friday June 10, for the fourth consecutive year, ACCIONA organized the Corporate Volunteer Day, in which ACCIONA volunteers taught workshops on sustainability and climate change to schoolchildren aged from 6 to 10 years.
This year, more than 400 employees took part in this global initiative, and more than 8,000 schoolchildren benefited from the workshops.
The ACCIONA volunteers (#ACCIONAvolunteers) travelled to around one hundred participating schools and spent two hours explaining to children that sustainability is achieved through small, day-to-day gestures that everyone can perform. Activities and games were used to show the children what their lives would be like without all the resources they use on a daily basis, to make them aware that, if they don't look after them, they will eventually disappear.
Volunteer Day, an initiative that is part of World Environment Day celebrations, is ACCIONA's way of raising schoolchildren's awareness of their active role in securing sustainable development and of disseminating the values of sustainability among its employees.
