Port Moresby Nature Park today launched for the third consecutive year the BSP Trash to Treasure Sculpture Festival, thanks to naming rights sponsor BSP Financial Group and other valued sponsors and supporters of the Park.
The festival emphasises on creating sculptures made of solid waste such as tins, cans, bottles, rubber and plastic collected around the city.
Speaking at today’s launch was BSP Financial Group’s Corporate Sponsorship Manager, Ms Amellia Minnopu, who reiterated BSP Financial Group’s commitment to supporting initiatives that contributed positively towards the conservation of the environment.
Also present at the Launch was Governor for NCD, Hon. Powes Parkop who was delighted to witness yet another event that supported NCDC’s efforts in reducing and recycling waste within the city.
On behalf of the Park’s CEO, Port Moresby Nature Park General Manager, David Thompson appreciated all the sponsors of the event, adding that the BSP Trash to Treasure Festival would not have been possible without everyone’s collaborative sponsorship and support.
Apart from the event’s main sponsors BSP Financial Group, Port Moresby Nature Park also thanked IHG Group, Trukai Industries, CPL Group, Goodman Fielder International, The National, NCDC, Digicel PNG and Active City Youth Development Program.
The current sculptures are designed and constructed by young volunteers from the University of PNG, UNDP and ATS settlement youths in Moresby North West.
The larger than life sculptures will be on display at the Port Moresby Nature Park for 5 weekends from 12 June-11 July for all to see and the Park welcomes everyone to be part of this fantastic event.
