Some Suggested CSR Activities
SHELL'S CSR project in Tallinn:
“They were extremely impressed of our idea (none of them knew what we have organized, so this was a surprise). They enjoyed a lot the idea of building something together, as they are used to cooperate together only in business, so some hands-on-work was really interesting. Moreover, the idea of helping local community was brilliant. They liked it so much so they have asked me to organize something similar on every meeting. They also enjoyed the city game and were generally impressed of how beautiful Tallinn is! I know they were really happy of overall impression and organization! “
