Some of our community development initiatives include:
Education and art for the community
To disseminate information about the job market and arts to the community living around the Centeranel Viracopos Logistics Park at Indaiatuba, São Paulo State, Racional Engenharia, in partnership with the São Nicolau de Flüe high school, offered local residents two education-related initiatives with Sesi-SP throughout: the course “The Professional Role and the Meaning of Work” and “Group Painting” workshops.
The job market course sought to encourage high school students to reflect on the concept and meaning of work, recognizing it as a source of identity, self-fulfillment and self-esteem. It also sought to contribute to enhancing their skills and identifying personal values and life projects as a source of motivation and professional engagement.
The Group Painting workshops were aimed at providing students with an overview of
drawing and painting, their interpretation and concept, while bringing out the artistic
skills in them. As a classroom activity the group developed art works using
Lectures at schools
Students from the Antonio João Municipal School attended training sessions on accident risk prevention and selective waste collection. The latter was replicated at Casa União, a charitable organization providing housing and support for children and adolescents.
In São Paulo, students from the Tom Jobim City School located next to the construction site for the BM&FBovespa Datacenter had a guided tour of the site to learn a little bit about civil construction. The topics presented to the children included:
- Construction site jobs and their functions;
- Environmental compensation on construction sites;
- Environmental initiatives adopted by the site.
The presentation also complemented the students’ school environmental project in that they learned that waste reduction and recycling principles can be applied to various environments.
Renovation of public facilities
The construction team working on the Morumbi Corporate Building site helped renovate the playground at the Joaquim Cândido de Azevedo Marques Elementary School located close to the site and celebrated the opening of the new playground with a party.
The event was attended by the site workers and their families who acted as volunteers and help with the preparation of the party, cleaning, and recreational activities.
