Green areas & outdoor life

About the programme

Do you have a dream project in you local community? The Employee Foundation has already supported 15 exciting projects that provide more green areas and outdoor activity opportunities.

In their concept, execution, creativity etc. the projects are true landmarks for others and comprise, for example:

  • creation or restoring of recreational areas;
  • outdoor areas that encourage activities;
  • outdoor areas that facilitate learning.

In collaboration with the municipality, local organisations, and clubs, employees and companies within the VKR Group have put forward proposals for promising projects. Watch the films to the right.
