A Seminar for Outdoor Challenge Event Organisers 2013

Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland, in association with Sport Northern Ireland, held a second Seminar for Outdoor Challenge Event Organisers at Lough Neagh Discovery Centre, Oxford Island, on 10th December 2013. The seminar saw the launch of the newly published 'Toolkit to Responsible and Sustainable Outdoor Challenge Event Organisers' and the recently updated Outdoor Event Planning Website.

In addition to presentations from Ken Taylor of Asken Ltd and Jerome Lachaze from WWF France and organiser of the WWF Pandathlon, workshops were held to outline each stage of the toolkit as well as provide information on the principles of Leave No Trace.

Presentations from the seminar are now available to download.
