Fill out the survey on Outdoor Sports in Protected Areas
The webinar “Outdoor Sports: Engaging with or using nature?” that took place on 27 April 2021 publicly launched the new ERASMUS+ SEE project. As part of the project, we invite all EUROPARC members to complete the survey – available in 4 languages – on outdoor sports practice in Protected Areas!
Give us your inputs on Outdoor Sports in Protected Areas
In the last EUROPARC Webinar on Outdoor Sports in Protected Areas, we heard inspiring case studies from a variety of speakers. If you missed it, you can watch the recording here. Additionally, the webinar also launched a new ERASMUS+ project: the SEE project – standing for Sustainability and Environmental Education in Outdoor Sports, in which EUROPARC is one of the partners.
In the initial phase of the project, EUROPARC created a survey to collect inputs from Protected Areas across Europe. From the survey, we hope to learn about the various impacts of outdoor sports in nature and innovative practices to effectively manage them.
We invite EUROPARC members to take part and fill out the survey, as it will provide valuable inputs for a future toolkit for outdoor sport trainers and educators!
Who is the survey for?
The survey is addressed to Parks and Protected Area managers or other professionals who have management authority over a publicly accessible natural area where outdoor sports take place. That includes all sorts of Protected Areas including Periurban Parks, Marine Protected Areas, Biosphere reserves, National or Regional Parks etc. In case your institution is managing more than one Protected Area, we would like to kindly ask you to submit several surveys – one per each Protected Area.
A survey addressed to the Outdoor Sports sector will follow later and will be prepared by other SEE project partners.
Available in 4 languages!
The questionnaire is available in 4 languages (English, French, German and Spanish), it should take about 15 minutes and is open until the end of May. We might get back to some of the respondents later to follow up – for example if you share an interesting case study.
The SEE project will then analyse the data and its outcomes should contribute to the preparation of a toolkit for outdoor sports trainers and educators in order to ensure a more sustainable, respectful and enjoyable outdoor sport experience.
We look forward to receiving your inputs!
