Embracing Sustainability in Team Building

50 years ago, team building activities in organizations used to be planned as organized retreat sessions: two days in remote locations with a clear agenda, mostly focused on leisure and commendations of accomplishments.

As the objectives of the teambuilding meetups remained the same, the duration of those retreats was made shorter. In the past 20-30 years, short activities have developed: the concept of a half day event became more common (something like an ‘escape room’ activity for example).

However, these objectives have evolved with time to tackle more pertinent topics. With the growing awareness of the global environmental crisis, and the rise of Corporate Social Responsibility, organizations are now seeking team-building experiences that go beyond mere fun and bonding. Actively engaging in sustainability efforts and striving towards regeneration rather than simply avoiding destruction is extremely crucial. Greening the team-building activities is one of the simplest steps toward kickstarting your green initiatives. Here are some of Eedama’s sustainable hands-on team-building ideas that aim to foster a sense of unity and enjoyment while promoting environmental awareness and action.

Disclaimer and clarification: While Eedama does promote and provide such activities, our primary emphasis is not on whether your organization engages with us. Instead, our main concern is advocating for the adoption of these practices by all organizations!
