ArcelorMittal supported the creation of a metallurgical garden at the Metallurgical Museum in Chorzów
RADOŚNIK inauguration took place on May 7 in the external area of the museum. The event was part of the family steel festival FLORIANFEST, attended by nearly a thousand people. A cast iron ingot mold, a slag ladle, a casting ladle, and small muffs turned into pots, and at the same time into a space inspired by the life, cuisine and nature of the working class in Upper Silesia.
The creation of an open-air ecological education point at the Museum was possible thanks to the significant support of our company. - From the very beginning, when we found out about the founding of the Metallurgy Museum, we were a strong supporter of this project. When we heard about the plans for the steel garden, we did not hesitate for a moment with our support. And the idea to plant plants in devices that are or were used in metallurgical processes perfectly fits into the concepts of a circular economy and shows that steel is an extremely versatile material, used yesterday as an element of the process, and today a flower pot - says Karolina Muza-Adamiec , head of the Campus, Business Responsibility, Diversity and Employer Branding at ArcelorMittal Poland.
Steel industry with respect to the natural environment
Radośnik is also supposed to be a kind of ecological education point. It was also created to be the beginning of a conversation about the pro-ecological ambitions of the modern steel industry, which is constantly changing, as well as the role of steel in the circular economy. - The steel industry is facing a huge challenge, which is decarbonisation and the pursuit of climate neutrality. ArcelorMittal in Europe has committed to reducing CO2 emissions by 35% by 2030 and achieving climate neutrality by 2050. Radośnik will not only please the eyes of the visitors, but will also be an educational platform – says Monika Olech from the Communications Office of ArcelorMittal Poland.
We encourage visitors to see what plants can be grown in muffs that the Huta Królewska plant donated to Radośnik.
