The European outdoor conference will provide a platform for delegates to learn about local examples of best practice in outdoor recreation and share their own experiences with local providers. There are two key themes throughout the conference - increasing participation for all in outdoor sports, and maximising the economic benefits that outdoor sports bring to a region.

Conference organisers Newry, Mourne & Down District Council and Sport Northern Ireland will be welcoming delegates from across Ireland, the UK and Europe.

The programme has been developed by Newry, Mourne & Down District Council – supported by Tourism NI, Tourism Ireland, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Mourne Heritage Trust and the National Trust. At an international level programme development has been led by the French Ministry of Sport in partnership with Sport Northern Ireland and other members of the European Network of Outdoor Sport (ENOS).

The programme includes a key note speaker from the Directorate General for Education and Culture in the European Commission as well as experts sharing success stories from across Europe. Workshops, discussions and plenary sessions will enable creative learning and sharing of information while a fantastic array of site visits in the Mournes area will showcase what is being done to develop outdoor activities there and facilitate informal networking.
