Transneft is launching the United Family Online Project as part of its corporate programme to support family active recreation. The first virtual event is scheduled for April.
The United Family programme has been an annual event for families of employees of Transneft and its subsidiaries since 2012. In the four recent years, it has been held in the Fregat resort facility (owned by Chernomortransneft) located 30 km away from the city of Novorossiysk on the Black Sea coast.
This season, Fregat has already welcomed its first visitors, but given the need to take measures aimed at preventing the spread of the coronavirus infection, Transneft stopped implementing the in-person programme on 27 March 2020 and decided to reshape it as an online event.
Not only the lucky recipients of Fregat resort facility vouchers, but all employees in the Transneft system and their family members willing to participate will become the project participants.
As per Russian President Decree No. 327, dated 08 July 2019, on “the Year of Memory and Glory” to be held in 2020 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, the programme anticipates a number of activities timed to this remarkable event.
Major emphasis will be placed on educational programmes, including the development of key literacy and knowledge types, basic skills and competences of the XXI century. Law, finance and medicine workshops have been planned along with individual expert advice sessions (a psychologist, an economist, a lawyer), astronomy classes, as well as a virtual tour to some places of interest on the Black Sea coast. Various club programmes have been developed for children from different age groups.
Experienced coaches will hold online trainings on proper breathing techniques, health-boosting exercises, immune system reinforcement, themed Yoga, Qigong and Back Pain Prevention Gymnastics Programme lessons, as well as a series of Being Healthy sporting activities. Dancing programmes, decorative and applied crafts master classes, competitions, interactive tours; cooking, choreography, acting and speaking master classes and many more events will be offered within the leisure and entertainment section.
The programme participants residing in different time zones will be provided with comfortable opportunities for online participation. The classes to be held in real time for residents of Russia’s Far East will be recorded for participants residing in the European parts of Russia, and vice versa. Fortnight cycles comprised of nonrecurrent classes at participants’ pick during the day will form the core of the programme.
Overall, the corporate outdoor United Family recreation programme will last 8 months, whereas during the period of restrictive measures it will be conducted online.
