Why Come to the “Euro’meet”
This great conference is a must for those responsible for outdoor and general sports development in Europe who are looking for innovative ways to get people and communities more active especially through the use of the outdoors.
Outdoor sports are growing in popularity all across Europe and can make a real difference to individual’s health and especially mental well-being, can create opportunities for employment and have had a long and very positive association with education and youth services. The Euro’meet will not only look at how such benefits are being optimised but will also provide insight into how these can be embedded into European and National Sports Policies.
If you are local and regional authority staff responsible for recreation and/or tourism, a university researcher or academic, or from a national federation or governing body of sport, or an outdoor business owner or manager then this conference is for you. The 3 day event will showcase best practice from across Europe and provide insights, toolkits and practical information on the projects and schemes that have worked well to develop opportunities for participation in outdoor sports or how economic benefits from outdoor sports have been identified and realised. The event will also look at the realistic challenges that need to be managed to develop outdoor sports and practical workshops and site visits will provide great opportunities for delegates to see the opportunities and issues that are being tackled around the Mournes, as well as providing excellent informal networking opportunities.
The Mourne Mountains is a very beautiful yet compact area of upland moorland, forest and coastline. There is access to mountains, forests, rivers and the sea all within a half hour radius of travel time and so this conference provides a really unique opportunity to explore a number of different facets of outdoor sport development. Balancing social, community, environmental and economic issues will be a key topic for discussion throughout the 3 days.
