Companies and organisations (Corporate Volunteering)

Enterprise mountain forest! A “Corporate Volunteering”-work week has its effect! Within the company, such assignments bring together staff of different levels and departments. To the outside, your company confirms that it is taking the matters of environment and society seriously. The Bergwaldprojekt will organise the whole work week (tools, meals, lodging, project leading). Assignments are designed for 15 to 30 people. The price of one assignment varies with the size of the company. We gladly advise you. Do not hesitate to contact us!

Commitment
A typical Bergwaldprojekt work week is no holiday job nor for late risers and would look like this: arriving on Sunday afternoon, foot march to the lodging (luggage is usually transported by a vehicle), settle in, slide presentation and introducing yourselves. Monday to Friday: get up at 6, copious breakfast, work in the mountain forest, which includes a half-day excursion as well as clearing the table after dinner and washing-up. At the end of the week, maintenance of working tools and cleaning of lodging.

Work
The forest dynamics allow no long term forecast of the work to be done; the jobs will be decided upon right before the work week begins, according to the needs of the forest. Possible tasks such as construction of trails, bulkheads, protections and fences against wildlife browsing, tending of the forest or the biotope, planting, or clearing stump areas are instructed by experienced group leaders and trained project leaders.

Lodging
Lodging is mainly in simple alpine or forest cabins, or vacation centre houses (dormitories) with warm showers.

Meals
We serve wholemeals. Lunch consists of a soup prepared upon a fire in the forest.

Equipment
The basic equipment consists of warm clothes suitable for mountain climate, including spares for rainy days. Two pairs of heavy mountain boots are imperative, as well as a good anorak, sleeping bag, pocket torch, and thermos flask.

Prerequisite
No forestry knowledge is required. Travel and insurance are payable by the participants.

Costs
The costs are paid by the companies or organisations. The price is depending on the number of participants and duration of the assignment.
