Medacta for Life Foundation and Medacta International have always focused on sustainability and the local area, shared values in our corporate culture. An important challenge is to enable these values to become tangible gestures, with active participation in the sustainable development policies of the territory and community where we live. This is how My Volunteering was born, which proposes to all employees to join volunteer actions chosen from among the partners and organisations supported by the Foundation.
Last Saturday, 23 September, a volunteering day was held for the Laveggio Park Project, whose valuable contents we have shared in a number of articles. The volunteer work proposed on Laveggio resulted in significant operational support: the planting of trees and shrubs, a real contribution to the development of the local flora and fauna. The naturalistic objective of the intervention is to improve the habitat for fish, refreshing the water in summer, as well as creating new living spaces for numerous animal species that find refuge and food along the river.
No previous experience or special knowledge required: just the desire to be together for a common goal of solidarity! A rich and worthwhile experience and a lot of enthusiasm on the part of our participants, for which we received compliments and deep thanks from the organisers in charge of the park.
Another type of community activity of which we are very proud and grateful to all employees for their lively and energetic participation are sports events.
This year we participated in the Corsa della Speranza, held on 16 June, and the Stralugano, held on 23-24 September.
We congratulate Medacta’s HR Team for their engaging proposals and organisational strength, and we also thank all the people who gave their support and time… Thank you for helping us to help!
