Time4Society - Europe
European companies are increasingly aware of their responsibilities towards society, the environment and climate. At the same time more and more employees want to show how, and why, they care about sustainability in our world.
The Time4Society (T4S) Europe project addresses both committed organisations and their staff - to become active in these fields and to participate in activities for communities and to give Time for Society.
The key to creating a vibrant and sustainable company is to find ways to get all employees—from top executives to assembly line workers—personally engaged in day-to-day corporate sustainability efforts.
The T4S initiative connects sustainable development with continuing professional development (CPD): Enterprises and employees offer time for the societal initiatives and for joint team and development activities.
‘Time4Society Europe’ is a transnational Erasmus+-project that aims to support enterprises and their employees. The project is based on the Belgian start-up T4S, which, since 2007, has organised over 250.000 hours of societal teambuilding in more than 2.000 social and environmental projects in Belgium. Based on its unique approach, T4S Belgium has worked with than 50.000 employees, to experience ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ and ‘Sustainable Social Development’ in worthwhile and practical ways.
In ‘Time4Society Europe’ the existing concept will be rolled out in six European member states in a consortium of
- blinc (Germany)
- Trendhuis (Belgium)
- Apricot Training Management (UK)
- Centro Libenter (Italy)
- Catro (Bulgaria)
- Die Berater (Austria)
Time4Society Europe addresses:
- Employers and companies who want to get more involved with sustainable development and contribute to society and their communities.
- Employees that look for opportunities to contribute to Sustainable Development in the professional domain
