Learning and adrenaline – Inchoo Learning Day #9

We had another Inchoo Learning Day in Baranja on Friday, May 26. It is a day when all of us Inchooers collectively leave our offices and enjoy the beauties of Slavonia and Baranja, and combine learning with team building activities.

This was the 9th Inchoo Learning Day (ILD) in a row. This time; Zlatna Greda, an eco center about 30 km from Osijek, in the middle of forest. Zlatna Greda is an organized concept that provides a practical experience of coexistence with nature as a place to learn, but also as a place to have fun; you can visit the adrenaline park, take a walk, or see the animals. It’s like a house in nature which functions through practical examples of sustainable growth, such as the renewable energy sources, waste separation, social entrepreneurship and responsible business conduct.
