The Leave No Trace Ireland volunteering programme is a great opportunity for companies to make a tangible and immediate improvement to our environment as well as helping local communities. Leave No Trace Ireland provide a volunteering programme which is a fantastic team building and personal development opportunity for employees outside of the normal working environment.
Leave No Trace Ireland helps business groups in a variety of ways, examples such as: linking with local Leave No Trace Ireland community groups, providing facilitated action days for employees, identifying particular community projects to engage with, and educating employees in the environment. Each year one business group who has shown outstanding community engagement is nominated in the annual, most devoted to the environment awards.
Leave No Trace Ireland's members can facilitate a group session, which includes liaising about the specific location, timings, providing a briefing document, arranging for rubbish collection points, providing all equipment needed, leading the group on the day, promoting the valuable action days through the network of community groups in the country. All specifics of the action day will be dealt with by a Leave No Trace Ireland trainer, e.g maximum number of people, location etc.
