EcoCity: Light for Olichov
In 2017, Slovenské elektrárne awarded "EcoCity" grants. So far, the programme supported 20 projects in the vicinity of the Mochovce Units 3&4 project.

One of these projects was proposed by the civil association “Svetlo pre Olichov” (Light for Olichov) and involved the construction of a recreational area in a social services facility.

The aim of the project was to establish cooperation with the local community in the village of Volkovce. Pensioners and scouts from the Second Scout Troop Buen Camino also participated.

“Our employees worked with clients and volunteers to lay paving tiles. We bought and installed benches, tables, bicycle stands, waste bins and a wooden information panel; we planted decorative trees and bushes and put up signs,” said Ms Simona Blažková, the representative of Light for Olichov.

The project also included a creative workshop where participants made ornaments from traditional materials. “Working and creating together brought us closer; we not only have a beautiful result in the form of a new recreation area, but we also had a great time and good feelings. This wonderful event could never have happened without the genuinely altruistic assistance of Slovenské elektrárne,” said Ms Blažková.
