MG celebrates the International Day for Mine Awareness

The main event of Community & Service project, the International Day of Awareness of the danger of land mines, took place on April 4th, 2012. On this occasion we left the school area for a popular city square in order to attract the attention of our fellow citizens.

In close cooperation with the Croatian Mine Action Centre, we had a booth with which we wanted to make the citizens of Zagreb aware of the danger of land mines. We handed out flyers, brochures, badges, and T-shirts which our students designed and made. We also urged citizens to donate money. The activity was very educational and successful. We gathered about 2,300 HRK.

Our action was supported by some well – known public persons. Our stall was visited by Mr. Milan Bandić, Mayor of Zagreb, opera singer Martina Tomčić and ice hockey team Medveščak.
