Get involved

  • Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation. We need the law about national trails in Russia. Now the trails do not legally exist, they are not protected. They do not have the status of a linear object, like a road, for example.

 

  • Promotion the concept of “Adopt a trail” among large companies, wealthy donors and other categories. Once, or better systematically, these benefactors either financially support the GBT (they support us so we could build / clear / repair this particular site), or they personally contribute to the trail – come as an organized group and do some work on the territory with our support.

 

  • We need volunteers from different cities and countries to participate in our projects: summer, autumn, winter. To do this, we need to promote our projects to the masses.

 

  • Socially oriented marketing. Some % of the sale of any product (as a rule, the category of “consumer goods” is a simple, necessary, inexpensive and often purchased. But not necessarily) goes for a socially useful goals. For example, to support trails on Lake Baikal. Example of goods: toothpaste, sports equipment, gasoline, automobile, A4 paper, Internet / communications, etc.

 

  • Promotion of leadership courses on working with volunteers in natural areas. This is one of our products that we have developed for PAs and not only.

 

  • To help find wealthy donors, that we could find such people and agree on what they are interested in donating to support our organization, and what we want and can do.

 

  • Advertising. We need more advertising of our activities, our projects and our positioning – the first national path of Russia. Promotion of the brand BBT in Russia and the world. There is such a social advertising. For example, call and logo on the billboard. (The logo flashes – this is already good). Or a video of social content.

 

  • Pro bono. This help is not money or products, it is help with qualifications, time and knowledge. For example, a lawyer donates an hour of his time and advice; designer helps with a brochure, etc. We sometimes need the help of a marketer, photographer, cameraman, copywriter, journalist, videographer, designer, syst.administraor, programmer, SMM-manager, community-manager.

 

  • Inventory. For example, in a large branch of a bank, furniture or computers were written off, but everything is in good condition. They are donated to public organizations. Or such a story could be with something else (touring equipment). We periodically need: tools for projects, chainsaws, awnings and tents, campfire, furniture and office equipment in the office, fuel, office consumables (paper, cartridges, office), maybe camping equipment (backpacks, seat mats, sleeping bags, rubber boots, etc.)

 

  • Corporate project of your team to Lake Baikal in order to build a piece of the GBT path with our support.

 

  • Promotional tour. Bring bloggers, journalists, officials, etc. Show the path, work, even a little bit to build something.

 

  • Branded souvenirs. Creating one with the brand GBT, several types (2-4). For example: buff / bandana, T-shirts, vests, gloves, socks, pants, scarf, cap, fleece, shorts, pillow for sleeping on the plane.

 

  • Exchange of experience. The GBT specialists participate in core projects of other organizations, drawing on new experience. Objective: to get acquainted in practice with the work of other organizations, with subtleties and intricacies, to develop personal connections.

 

  • Food and products for volunteer projects: cereals, salt / sugar, canned foods, sublimates, sweets, confectionery.

 

  • The most important thing for us is the payroll fund. There is a payroll – there is a team, there is a team – there is work, trails, projects and everything else. There are no such specialists anywhere else in the country.
