Environment & Certifications
Dalslands Aktiviteter is a relatively small company, but we still realise the importance in taking our respeonsibility for the environment and nature which is a great part and prerequisite for our business. Even though our environmental impact is comparably small, we would like to set an example. Therefore, we are now in the start-up of exciting environmental work within the company. In 2014 we have also started offering nature tourism experiences and conveying knowledge of nature, environment and sustainability. To have a look at the basic environmental guidelines that permeates our business, please download our environmental policy.
During the years we have aquired certifications that we have found to be relevant and rewarding for our business. More will most certainly follow, especially in the environmental field. Below you will find the relevant certifications that we have currently achieved.
The Swedish National Defence College started an extensive developmental work in the mid 2000's. It resulted in the fifth edition of UGL, the UGL 2008. In this development all modern science on group development, leadership and personal development have been included in the course. This work has been a cooperation between the Swedish National Defence College's own scientists on the subject of leadership, scientists from other universities and colleges as well as experienced UGL instructors.
UGL as a concept has existed in Sweden for more than 30 years and during this time it has gone through several extensive modifications. Despite the shift of theories, methods and exercises as well as an alteration of the instructor role, the core and foundation of UGL has remained intact. The foundation is to provide knowledge and insight about groups and their development, how the group and the learning relate, how leadership influence on an individual- and group-level as well as raise the awareness on how individuals influence and are influenced in turn by relationships to other people. At Dalslands Aktiviteter we have long and profound experience of just that.
