SEE Project International Webinar

SEE Project International Webinar

Join Leave No Trace’s Dr Noel Doyle and partners of the SEE Project for a free webinar on Friday May 13th, 9am GMT.

The SEE project aims to provide support to increase the competency of outdoor sports instructors, leaders and guides in sustainability and environmental education.

There are three key elements to the project:

Work Package 1: Research

Work Package 2: Knowledge sharing and toolkit development

Work Package 3 Testing and finalising

The webinar will provide the information on the research findings to date. The research has looked at 4 things:

1. A survey of the protected areas across Europe into the perceived issues associated with outdoor sports

2. A review of training regimes in a number fo partner countries and then a survey to capture how environmental training is incorporated into leadership training courses.

3. A review of federations’ websites in partner countries and a range of other countries to see what environmental information is provided

4. A review of the broader sustainability issues that outdoor sports can create

Programme will be:
