IBMers planting trees in RüschlikonAs part of IBM’s centennial celebration, over 100 employees of the IBM Research – Zurich Lab participated in the IBM Centennial Day of Service for various environmental and social projects.  In total, more than 300,000 IBM employees are participating worldwide.

Lab director Matthias Kaiserswerth was amongst the IBM volunteers who planted apple trees in the local community of Rüschlikon, declaring that “This a chance to reflect on what it means as a professional and as a global citizen to be a part of IBM’s ongoing Smarter Planet agenda.”

The Lab’s Day of Service is a contribution to several charities including: – this local Swiss charity has a cooperation with the United Nation to plant 1 billion trees per year.  The charity also organizes local Swiss environmental projects, such as bike to work.

Rainbows4Children – A Swiss and UK based charity dedicated to building schools in Ethiopia.

Paul’s colleague Charlotte Bolliger agreed, adding, “It was inspiring because this is something that will grow and continue to be enjoyed by the community in the future.”

As of Friday, 17 June 2011, IBM has donated 301,543 hours of service in Europe alone. For more information, see ibm100/com.
