Corporate Social Responsibility
Activities that aim corporates at the active and voluntary contribution to the social, economic and environmental improvement.
Since 1998, Obrint Via has collaborated with the Casal dels Infants to promote adventure sports that complement their summer activities programs, especially those for young people.
Solidary actions with Casal dels Infants
The Casal dels Infants was originally set up by a group of people related to the Raval district of Barcelona to create a neighbourhood with more opportunities for children and families. More than 30 years later, this spirit is still conveyed throughout all the districts where the Casal is involved.
The Casal dels Infants works at a neighbourhood level, focusing on those children and young people with the most social needs in order to achieve tangible, long-lasting improvements in for them and their immediate environment, helping to transform society through collaborative work that includes: social action, lobbying, raising awareness, mobilising citizens and active volunteering.
Through trust, commitment and transparency we bring about alliances that have an impact on society.
We help your teams become more involved in society via the following actions:
– Setting up groups of volunteers to take part in specific activities organised by the Casal.
– Linking an action from your client loyalty scheme with the Casal.
– Organising a charitable activity.
We encourage your teams to create initiatives, designing activities and organising events with the aim of collecting funds among your network.
The resources obtained through such actions can be allocated to a specific project carried out by the Casal, to its educational grant programme or to the organisation as a whole.
Make your responsibility more visible and share it with your stakeholders!
Calendar with potential charitable and social actions
The right to play is recognised in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, adopted by the UN General Assembly on 30 November 1959, principle 7: “The child shall have full opportunity for play and recreation, which should be directed to the same purposes as education; society and the public authorities shall endeavour to promote the enjoyment of this right”.
Depending on their type, games can help children in their physical, psychomotor, social and affective development.
The French pedagogue Freinet believed that, for children, play has the same value as work (or serious activity) for adults.
One of many examples of global warming is the fact that, in the last 50 years, the Arctic has lost 75% of its floating pack ice when this zone had been permanent for more than 800,000 years, an effect produced by the excessive consumption of fossil fuels.
Thanks to scientific studies we are aware of certain biotic factors such as solar radiation, tectonic plates and volcanic eruptions that have been responsible for regulating the climate throughout different stages in our planet’s existence but now, in the 21st century, some human activities have been identified as among the biggest causes of this acceleration in climate change.
Based on these two issues: the future inhabitants of the planet, namely children today, and the uncontrolled global warming that needs to be reversed, we propose a toy-building workshop recycling waste materials such as plastic, cardboard, metal, etc. to give them a new life full of fun and play.
The toys produced by the participants’ imaginations and creativity will be donated to the Casal dels Infants.
