Poland’s SKR-P conducts SDGs-related youth support project, “Let’s Transform the World Together!”


Seeing contributions to the local community as an investment in the future, SumiRiko Poland Sp. z o.o. (SRK-P) has been conducting corporate citizenship activities since 2000 to improve its corporate and public value.
The objective of its “Let’s Transform the World Together!” project is to encourage junior and senior high school students to think about how to inculcate the SDGs in the community and about what they themselves can do to realize that aim, and to foster their ability to plan and execute projects. The students are divided into groups and asked to discuss projects that would contribute to achieving Goals 6, 12, and 13 of the SDGs. The groups then submit a proposal, with the best ones selected to receive financial support from SRK-P for their implementation. In fiscal 2018, SRK-P launched workshops in December for students of three schools in the city of Wolbrom, where SRK-P is located. Five projects were implemented under the program in April 2019. In fiscal 2020, due to the impact of the spread of the new coronavirus, the face-to-face activity program was changed to ways that can be implemented even under the Corona pandemic such as an online SDGs workshop, and activity support financial award based on the number of votes cast for the organization by students.
The NGOs that were selected by the students' votes will be working with SRK-P as SDGs partners to promote the SDGs in the region.
