Helping Spread the Message

The Irish Girl Guides

To help spread the message of Leave No Trace, the Irish Girl Guides not only included an article on Leave No Trace within its October Leaders’ magazine, but also sent out with each magazine a copy of the Leave No Trace booklet. They have also changed the syllabus in their Brownie programme (for girls 7 – 10 years of age) from “understand the importance of the Country Code” to “understand the Leave No Trace message”.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is planning an expedition conference on Sat 9th February, 2008, in Ardnabannon Outdoor Education Centre, Castlewellan. A number of workshops will be offered including an Awareness Session on Leave No Trace. The Award is a proactive supporter of Leave No Trace and will be encouraging all groups and participants to adopt the Leave No Trace principles especially for expeditions.
