An Introduction to Leave No Trace, Ireland- Clare Co Co
December 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Leave No Trace is an Outdoor Ethics Education Programme designed to promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation through education, research, and partnerships. Tourism and outdoor activities can be particularly vulnerable to environmental impacts such as dumping, water pollution, degradation of vegetation, and biodiversity loss and it is important to note that litter, pollution, path erosion, disturbance to vegetation, wildlife, livestock and other people are indicators already evident in Ireland of the need for greater environmental protection.
As a result of Covid-19 more people than ever are taking time to enjoy Ireland’s outdoors. However, with the surge in outdoor users, often to the same well-known places, overcrowding, parking issues and increased littering are just some of the impacts being felt across Ireland.
Leave No Trace Ireland seeks to address these impacts through teaching techniques designed to minimise environmental and social impacts in these areas through its education programme.
