Siberian Green Key hotel active in social responsibility

The Green Key awarded Cronwell Resort Ugorskaya Dolina is working very actively with its social responsibility. 

Cronwell Resort Ugorskaya Dolina is located in Khanty-Mansiysk, a city located east of the Ural Mountains in Siberia, Russia. As part of its social responsibility, the hotel is providing space for the local ethnography museum to display exhibitions about the native population of the region. Guests staying in the hotel can without entrance fee visit the exhibition and learn more about the everyday life of the local Khanty and Mansi tribes.

The hotel is also active in supporting the local community in other ways. The hotel has been engaged in a project of having children at a nearby local orphanage drawing pictures, and the hotel has been selling the drawings to raise funding for more activities for the children in the orphanage.

To spread the knowledge about the unique cider tree growing in Siberia, the hotel is planning to be engaged in handing out cider seeds to guests visiting the hotel, and nearby schools involved in the Eco-Schools programme will be preparing instructions about how to grow the cider tree.
