Ecology: From Theory to Practice

On Saturday, 22nd of April, the monthly meeting of college scholarship holders of the Hastor Foundation was held. As is always the case, the scholarship holders had an opportunity to actively participate and discuss a range of interesting topics, as well as get to know each other. In addition to all the content which drew our scholarship holders’ undivided attention, special emphasis was put on ecology. 

This month’s tripartite meeting of our Foundation commenced with a dynamic lecture of two our scholarship holders, Belmana Gerin and Amina Šatara, who are students of The Džemal Bijedić University of Mostar, department of Ecology and Environmental Management in Agriculture. The two of them delivered a lecture on ecology, its importance in preserving the environment, as well as the dangers of disregarding its role and the necessity of the environmental protection in general. They wrapped up the first part of the meeting with a short workshop during which the scholarship holders were required to suggest their ideas and projects that would help combat the pollution in the cities of Sarajevo, Tuzla and Zenica. It should be noted that this was the Foundation’s way of marking the Earth Day, which was, naturally, done with the friendly support of Lutrija BiH (State Lottery of Bosnia and Herzegovina). Nevertheless, this is by no means the end of the story about ecology, but only an overture to the more concrete actions of our scholarship holders who will join their forces in May and help clean their environment. In addition to the aforementioned actions, two more are announced, namely the cleaning of the riverbeds of Miljacka and Drina. This large project of the Hastor Foundation will also be supported by the Lutrija BiH.
