What we do

Collaboration for success

We believe that collaboration and exchange of ideas and experiences across borders are key factors for success. Therefore, we provide an international platform for networking, inspiration, reflection and exchange of ideas.

The WIMA® portal is a co-creation together with the users, bloggers and collaborators. Users and those highlighted in our portal are individuals, non-profit initiatives and organisations as well as professionals and profit-making businesses.

Get inspired by women

A special focus is set on women, because the mountain adventure community needs more female role models, women leaders and benefits from including several perspectives. Initiatives provided by, or services and products intended for women and girls are hence given extra attention in this portal.

 

Innovation for sustainability and climate actions

To be able to continue enjoying the mountains together with coming generations, sustainability and climate actions are essential. Therefore, we support innovations and solutions enabling more sustainable and climate friendly adventures in the mountains.

Sustainability

UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030) are essential to us, because we believe they are key for managing a rapid societal transformation. With this web portal we put a special focus on four of the goals:

Goal 5  Gender equality
Goal 12 Responsible consumption and production
Goal 13 Climate action
Goal 17 Partnerships for the goals 

The mountain adventure community needs more female role models, women leaders and benefits from including several perspectives. Sustainable production and consumption is crucial, and the outdoor community should take the lead. Innovative and courageous climate actions are necessary to minimize the effects of global climate change, and every action counts. Cross-border collaboration and partnerships are essential to reach the goals set by the UN for 2030. Further reading…

The e-mail addresses to the subscribers of our WIMA© newsletter are important to us, but we have no interest and will not use individual names and e-mail addresses for other purposes.

Profit strategy

Our blog articles are independent and written without profit interest. In addition, we choose to highlight interest groups, initiatives, professionals and influencers free of charge on the community pages. 

However, we take a fee for providing and updating web links, and for intermediating contact details to those being highlighted on the community pages. 

Our profit is generated from writing the articles labeled ‘Sponsored Articles’ and other marketing services provided through this web portal. We also provide general consultancy services regarding innovation and research.

Language policy

English is our formal language on the website, but we sometimes present blog posts in an additional language. 

To enable a quick and safe editing of comments, we only publish comments on blog posts that are written in English.
