"Voluntary work" Top 5 Page for this destination Oslo Local Custom Tip by Hildeal

Oslo Local Customs: 145 reviews and 237 photos


Even though we’re not associated with politeness, we do a lot of voluntary work.

Dugnad is unpaid work. Parents with kids attending the school corpse will join a dugnad
By arranging flee markets, to support their children’s corps trip.They want to make it as cheap as possible. Some parents with kids attending private school will do renovation work in order to save some money. In some housing cooperatives the residents will do dilapidated work in order to keep costs down

Attending a dugnad is also a meeting point, this is the only chance you get, to meet your neighbors. If you don’t attend dugnad, and don’t have a really good excuse, you are very likely to be perceived as slow and unsocial. That makes you unpopular. So you should do it, and after that, they will leave you alone the rest of the year.
