We often talk about the 'Sika Spirit' and how it's something within our teams that we can't quite put our finger on... well one thing's for sure Sil Santangelo definitely has it!

Sil retires from Sika Corporation in the USA this month after a tremendous 60 years of dedicated service to the company.

Sil joined Sika on February 6th, 1957, just two years after graduating from Passaic High School in New Jersey. At the time there were only 25 employees and the product line consisted of only 10 products. Sil comments: “When I started with Sika, it was like family. That same family spirit exists today – 60 years later! It is a very diverse organization. I am still proud to be a part of it.”

We would like to thank Sil for his dedicated service, and you can read his story online: http://fal.cn/Qwqm

SIKA SPIRIT - Youth Encounter on Sustainability (YES)

Our aim is to improve the well being of the organization, the environment, and the people with whom we are dealing. Therefore it is obvious we need to network with young talents, which are already strongly involved in sustainable thinking.

In December 2016, in alliance with Amirkabir University of Technology and together with institutional and business partners like Sika, «myclimate» implemented the 1st YES lab in Iran.

LIVING OFF-GRID IN EARTHSHIPS

http://fal.cn/QREU
Earthships are a self-sufficient alternative to the conventional home. Instead of relying heavily on outside organizations to receive utilities, they allow people to live off-the-grid, independent of the economy and government. Earthships are typically built of material which have been thrown away. Find out more in this interesting article... @BBCEarth @atlasobscura #RoxanneFonderReeve
