Leave No Trace Ireland Encourages Everyone To Participate In National Walking Day, Sunday September 27th 2020, By Visiting Their Local Outdoor Spaces
This Annual celebration as part of the European Week of Sport encourages people to get out walking to benefit their physical and mental health and wellbeing. Research shows that walking in natural environments such as woodlands, greenways and mountain trails can help to reduce stress and improve wellbeing.
National Walking Day aims to inspire people to get out and walk in their local areas due to the great physical and mental wellbeing benefits of walking. It is an initiative by Get Ireland Walking, supported by Sport Ireland and takes place as part of the European Week of Sport. Leave No Trace Ireland is delighted to be involved and to support this annual event by encouraging the public, regardless of age or ability, to get active and stay local.
