Activities for local communities

Key social programs implemented in 2021:

  • “Champions on the Road”

    “Champions on the Road” is a multi-faceted program designed to educate and engage young drivers in efforts to improve road safety. The program has been implemented since 2020. Additionally, as regards road safety, in 2021 the LOTOS Group launched a new program "LOTOS - Safety Academy", aimed at school children and youth from Pomerania.

  • "Direction Baltic"

    Since 2008 the LOTOS Group has been implementing the "Direction Baltic" program with its partners: University of Gdańsk Development Foundation and the University of Gdańsk Marine Station in Hel. The Program carries out activities related to the protection of the Baltic Sea’s biodiversity. In addition, a strong emphasis is placed on environmental education and dissemination of knowledge about the problem of plastic and microplastics in the Baltic Sea.

  • E(x)plory

    • Since 2013, the LOTOS Group has been a patron of the E(x)plory Program - Poland's largest initiative supporting talented young people in the implementation of innovative scientific projects and promoting their achievements in the international arena. It is a space that brings together young people, scientific authorities, start-ups and experienced companies, NGOs, media, Polish schools and the best universities, big cities and small towns. The main goal of the program is to popularize science among children and youth.

“Masters in the Making” is another attempt to shape the attitudes of masters of motor traffic safety. We are running this project jointly with the Lotos Group. We target young drivers through these actions with the underlying assumption being to augment their vehicle driving skills. During workshops with pupils from the older classes of high schools we conduct experiments to illustrate how important it is to concentrate on driving, understanding the law and enhancing skills. By practicing driving techniques, we create opportunities for people to refresh proper vehicle driving habits and we teach them how to conduct themselves in extreme situations on the road. We want to emphasize that practice makes perfect.

The Baltic Direction is a program run by the Lotos Group jointly with the University of Gdańsk Development Foundation and the Professor Krzysztof Skóra University of Gdańsk Marine Station focused on educating people on how to protect Baltic Sea porpoises and seals and the threats to the Baltic Sea’s ecosystem, especially underwater noise pollution and micro plastics. In 2021 we promulgated behaviors to benefit the environment and encouraged people to make conscious consumer decisions during plenary events and in social media by posting podcasts and animations. We sensitized nearly 296 thousand people visiting the seal center in the town of Hel to the need for affording protection to marine nature.
