Environmental education for children: "OMAHA" in Czech Republic
Ms Julia Kuzelkova of Panasonic AVC Networks Czech, s.r.o. is working with the Water Scouts "OMAHA" organization.
Omaha was set up in 1990 to provide environmental education for children, and now consists of a total of around 900 members divided into six groups. The activities involve canoe lessons on rivers both in the Czech Republic and other countries, to help the children learn about the importance of environmental conservation. The grant is now going toward the construction of a multi-purpose trailer for transporting the boats and other materials necessary for this activity.
Support for Shelters
Panasonic has donated clothing and shoes to a local organization in the Czech Republic, SKP-Centrum, which collects clothing for humanitarian catasrophes and runs shelters for the homeless, mothers and children who are in social need, and victims of domestic violence.
Young Prague Festival
In the Czech Republic, Panasonic is a proud sponsor of The Young Prague Festival, an event held every summer that gives musicians aged 15 to 30 from around the world the invaluable opportunity to make their debut onto the international music scene. Since we began sponsoring the event in 1997, hundreds of young classical instrumentalists, singers, chamber group performers, conductors and composers have showcased their talents to thousands of attendees at world-class venues as well as networked with musicians and other professionals in the classical music industry.
