The things we feel strongly about… besides delivering amazing websites and apps
02.12.2019 | 2 min read
At 10Clouds, we have a team of developers and designers bringing a whole range of web and mobile projects to life. But we want to put our skills to further good use, by supporting causes that we personally feel strongly about. Below are just some of the areas on which we’ve decided to focus our efforts.
- Our environment
Climate changes caused by global warming are the main topic of political and social disputes around the world and also in Poland. We know that there’s a colossal amount of work to be done in this area and we realize how much time it takes to implement meaningful change. As a company, we want to play our part in this common goal.
Earlier this month we hosted a Climate Change Hackathon, which connected people from different sectors who were concerned about the climate crisis and keen to work on practical solutions.
There were five key themes up for discussion, with practical solutions offered. Topics included: county education about climate change and creating online ‘green bots’ with the aim of spreading information about the climate.
We believe that new technologies can help our environment and our planet.
- The cities in which we operate
More recently, we were the official gold sponsors of WawCode, a 24-hour hackathon aiming to deliver apps and other tech developments that will improve the lives of Warsaw’s citizens.
We are very keen to ensure that the cities in which we operate are great places to live in, and with our HQ being in the capital, we thought it was only right for us to get fully on board with this event.
We’re on the lookout for ways in which we can support the other cities in which we’re based: Poznań, Wrocław and Atlanta.
- Fellow citizens
We believe that supporting others unites us even more as a team. Joint actions in this direction allow us to get to know ourselves and eachother better. At 10Clouds one of our values is humanism and we understand that basic dignity can never be sacrificed. We respect ourselves and others. We are open to many things. We take joy from our work.
We recently held a Boardgame giveaway in our office. Our CEO Maciej Cielecki decided to have a clearout of his games, which we put up for auction. More than 70 people attended the event (either remotely or in person) and it was great to see that every game found a new home.
Together, our supporters managed to raise more than 14,500 zł for the charity, MożeszITy, which helps children in foster care to build a self-reliant future and find work in the IT industry.
Furry friends also come under the umbrella of fellow citizens and there are many dog-lovers among the 10Clouds staff. That’s why we chose to support the Dog Shelter in Milanówek, through organising a collection of food and other goodies.
