Social Responsibility

Empower everyone.

Wild nature has ways of empowering people that few other environments can match. In Ousland Oslo Outdoor we have seen first hand the positive impact attachment to wild nature can have on people that for various reasons are struggling in life. How a facilitated day or week in the wild can transform negativity and create positivity and prosperity. Create feelings of mastering and responsibility. Make real values visible. Values that can be brought back from the outdoors and used in their everyday life.

In Ousland Oslo Outdoor we are privileged to be able to do what we do for a living. Which is why we use our skills and experience to help empower also those that are struggling and perhaps are not able to empower themselves. Because we can.

That is why we started the Ousland Oslo Outdoor Empowerment Program. It gives corporate businesses and public institutions the possibility to sponsor a facilitated tour or expedition with clients in need of special attention. Clients have included a variety of groups with very diverse needs, from drug-addicts to corporate business leaders who’d hit the wall.

Through cooperation with health personell and experts from social authorities we design every tour to fit the clients, which could be a small group or an individual. Professional health personell and other experts may also participate during the whole tour if needed or desired.

The guides from Ousland Oslo Outdoor don’t charge salaries for tours conducted within the Empowerment Program. It is our way of giving something back to the community. As a sponsor you pay for the actual costs pluss whatever you like.
