The Coalition launches #itsgreatoutthere Outdoor Activity Days and announces a new round of funding for grassroots projects

Since its launch in 2017, the Coalition has grown into a major pan-European movement, inspiring citizens to get active in the outdoors. Through the #itsgreatouthere campaign, the coalition has both promoted outdoor participation to the public and worked with European institutions to influence policy that encourages active lifestyles. In addition, #itsgreatoutthere has directly helped get more of the public into nature for the first time, with thousands of young people across Europe benefiting from grants that have supported grass roots projects.

Now, we are ready to announce the next phase of our vital initiative: the launch of the #itsgreatoutthere Outdoor Activity Days. This new concept will allow more companies, other organisations and individuals to get actively involved in the campaign. Crucially, it will deliver clear and measurable results that highlight the impact of every contribution, all firmly aligned with the latest World Health Organization’s latest guidelines for physical activity.

The official launch of the #itsgreatoutthere Outdoor Activity Days will take place via Zoom on Wednesday 24th February between 12:00 and 12:45 CET.
