We are very happy to announce the summer season of the Local Discoveries with 4 new destinations, and also to welcome more drivers to join our driver pool (see register link below) so we can take more people out in the nature!
In the past spring, the new Local Discoveries team organized 5 trips that allowed 66 people to get out of Lund and to discover amazing nature areas in Skåne. Our excursions took place every other Sunday between March 31 and May 26, reaching out to Häckebergasjön, Romeleåsen, Söderåsen, Hovdala, and Kullaberg.
The carrying idea behind the Local Discoveries is this: In order to truly enjoy the place where you are living, you also need to know the hidden secrets of its surroundings - the places to visit, the cultural landscape and the nature areas that define the region. Many people in Lund, especially newly arrived, have not had a chance to discover what is outside the city borders, and would not be able to get out into the countryside on their own. With the Local Discoveries, Eos Cares is providing an opportunity for people to build an attachment to the Skåne region through discovering its amazing beauty.
Furthermore, from an integration perspective, we have found that these nature excursions is a great way for people to meet. As with all of Eos Cares activities, we aim to unite people of all backgrounds and society groups. Through a common introduction, car sharing and an extensive time together in a calm and inspiring outdoor, the participants have good opportunities for interaction and social bonding. The nature trips also align with our Sustainability initiative, where we try to draw attention to the connection between our interior peace of mind and our habits & behaviors that put footprints on our external environment.
For the coming summer, we are aiming for the following destinations either by car sharing or public transport. More information and registration to be announced soon at Local Discoveries Page and Facebook Group!
INFORMATION: Sommarkort is available at Skånetrafiken that allows to explore Skåne by public transport during 15 June - 15 August with a price of 699 SEK. Thus we have decided to do the first 2 trips by p
