Lessons learned - Achill Island Project Meeting

The 4th SEE Project partner exchange took place in the Achill Outdoor Education Centre (OEC), Ireland's oldest Outdoor Education Centre, established on Achill Island for over 50 years.

The next step was to investigate each of these sports in their own country to gather information on their leaders’, guides’, or instructors’ training programmes. Nine partner countries were involved in looking for information on the number of courses available, and whether environmental education was offered in their leadership training programmes. Ler mais

BeActive... BeOutdoors... BeSustainable

It is recognised that as individuals and as a society, we have an impact on the natural environment. Our day-to-day activities in and around our sporting practices can contribute to greenhouse emissions. Decisions we make on how we travel, what we eat, the equipment we use all has an accumulative effect on the environment. Therefore, we must seek to reduce and if possible, eliminate these. Where it is not possible to do this, we must look at ways to mitigate these as effectively as possible. Ler mais
