The European Week of Sport along with the #BeActive logo is one of the key mechanisms that the European Commission is using to encourage greater participation in health enhancing physical activities. This theme will provide examples and case studies of good practice on what the outdoor sector can do to assist. Presenters will show cases on how we can be more effective in the delivery of opportunities for all people to be active regardless of background, ethnicity, ability or age and also on how being active in the outdoors provides distinct physical and mental health benefits.

Topics to be discuss:

  • Effectively ENGAGING new participants in outdoor sports;
  • Evidence of the BENEFITS of Outdoor sports;
  • PROMOTING an accessible routine to improve health and well-being;
  • Highlighting how to DEVELOP outdoor sports instructions, coaching and opportunities to improve health and well-being.
