Social engagement

Our partnerships

As a responsible company, Tryg wants to contribute to ensuring equal education for all. We participate in several partnerships, which contribute to the education of children and young adults.

Børn

At Tryg, we believe that good education is important and that we can contribute to this. Therefore, we have joined into partnerships with Teach First Denmark, Mattip and the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue

Teach First Denmark

In 2019, Tryg entered into a partnership with Teach First Denmark, a non-profit organisation working to create equal opportunities for all children in Denmark. As part of our partnership, Tryg welcomes a group of school-children from Tingbjerg Skole for an internship twice a year at our head office in Denmark. They experience how it is to work in an insurance company and which skills it requires along with being introduced to possible job opportunities. 

Mattip

Tryg is engaged in a partnership with Mattip, a free online portal for math teachers, where math assignments are themed on insurance. Through this partnership, we help young people gain knowledge about the importance of insurance through fun and relevant mathematic assignments. The assignments relate to different insurance top­ics which are relevant to young people, including topics like cyber security, theft and travelling.

Safe in water courses

Since 2017, Tryg has worked with the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue, Region West, to offer the course Safe in water to 12- to 14 year-old school-children. The courses are run during autumn and winter and give the children a chance to experience being in the cold water, wearing wetsuits and life jackets, while being supervised by skilled instructors. Participating schools receive a full day of education in understanding the risks associated with water, practicing first aid and learning the key principles of self-rescue and life-saving. Also, learning to throw a lifebuoy is an important part of the course.
