Cooperation with the Local Community
Promoting social activities in Baia Formosa has always been an important part of Gremi International's strategy for the “Arteco Estrela” project. Social Development combined with economic growth being a result of the establishment of the resorts will bring better quality of life for the region.
The International Film Festival (FINC) is an annual event created by Greg Hajdarowicz, founder of Gremi International. Focused on short movies it brings important incentive for local filmmakers and has been gathering people interested in the film industry for the last 9 years. The winner of the 1 Minute Movie Competition travels to participate in the Off Camera Festival in Cracow with his winning movie.
Sport events such as beach volleyball competitions and running events are co-organized with local associations.
Environmental protection and nature care are essential for such a heavenly scenery. Gremi International has registered Baia Formosa in the Clean up the World movement and organizes periodically beach cleaning events with local schools and local authorities.

Cooperation with IFRN
The IFRN’s social function is to provide professional and technological education in referenced quality and political-pedagogical architecture capable of articulating science, culture, work and technology. IFRN’s commitment to human development, active citizenship and the production and the socialization of knowledge aims to transform reality in terms of social equality and justice. The pursuit of technical skill permeates all the levels of education offered, from basic worker training to secondary (integrated and subsequent) and higher (undergraduate, technological and postgraduate) vocational training. Given IFRN’s important role in technical vocational education for different sectors of the economy, as well as supporting integration, development and the quality of the project, we are cooperating with IFRN in different areas. This includes the Film Festival described above, which aims to stimulate cultural production and entrepreneurship, and areas directly linked to the project where, during its first phase, over 400 jobs will be created for the local community. To support scientific and technological development, along with reflective thinking, we will work together to prepare young people to join the project’s Bio-Tech Hub. For this cooperation, we are counting on the support of IFRN, which has more than 21 campuses in the state of Rio Grande do Norte. One of them, with capacity for over 1,200 students, is just 10 km away from the project.
