Event description: Are we sweating our natural assets in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin?
A vast amount of our landscape is countryside with a plethora of hills, rights of way, woods, waterways and mini lakes but do we make use of these natural assets to get local people active and healthy whilst also attracting visitors from further afield?

This is our third conference & we will introduce the latest thinking on how both these issues can be tackled for the benefit of our physical, mental and economic well-being. Sharing cutting edge research, practical examples from other areas and information about local support to providers of activity we aim that you will leave empowered and inspired to take that next step.

With confirmed speakers from

  • Sport & Recreation Alliance who will present their new ground breaking national research ‘Reconomics’ into the economic value of the outdoor recreation.
  • Anndrea Runkee from Cumbria Tourism ‘Adventure Capital’ project the event promises to be one that cannot be missed.
  • The National Trust will share successes to date for their ground breaking Sports England project

You will also hear about local funding and support for adventure sports projects. How to market your project effectively plus you will have opportunities to network.

If you’re promoting tourism or economic development or an activity provider (whether that be an activity centre, youth group, forest school, outdoor club, educational outdoor provider, provider of wildlife experiences, independent instructor or outdoor education student) this event is for you.
