Next year, NFI will offer a CSR training for Naturefriends houses (tenants or house managers) and Naturefriends travel agencies (in English and in German).
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can be described as voluntary social responsibility of enterprises. Companies integrate their social, ecological and economic environment into their corporate strategy as well as into their daily activities. They thus contribute to sustainable development.
This CSR training provides many opportunities for Naturefriends houses. Amongst others, it offers evaluation of ecological, economic and social criteria and shows potential for improvement and economisation. It combines theory and application, as practical implementation of the theory in a Naturefriends house or travel agency is one of the prerequisites for successful completion of the training. In a few Naturefriends houses, some of these standards are already being implemented, which forms a good basis.
Please find a more detailed description of the training (contents, time frame etc.) in the download section.
NFI will assume costs for accommodation and boarding and reimburse travel costs of up to 150 € per person. The training is free of charge.
Please send your application for the training and workshop of the House Standards Advisory Group back to me until 20th January 2013. If you have any questions concerning the training, please contact Cathrine Schwenoha:
