Outdoor North Wales Forum Latest
The Outdoor North Wales Forum on February 28th at the Glasdir Conference Centre in Llanwrst, will be of interest to anyone involved with the outdoor sector.
Building on the success of last year's inaugural event, the diverse list of organisations and businesses giving presentations, range from the Welsh Government and its statutory bodies, to innovative activity operators.
Following on from our reporting of the National Trust's Ambassador Business Scheme, Jonathan Hughes, the General Manager for the Trust in Pembrokeshire, who also takes the lead on outdoor activities for the Trust across Wales, has invited outdoor activity providers to meet with representatives of the Trust at the Forum - download letter
Jonathan will also present the Trust's approach to managing outdoor activities on their properties across the country. This is a valuable opportunity to hear and speak to them about their plans. For more on the Ambassador Business Scheme with download link to document click here
The Institute of Outdoor Learning (IOL) will be there along with Association of Heads of Outdoor Centres (AHOEC) members who are all working to positively address the challenges the sector faces, on topics such as the future of Adventure Licensing. With one in three local authority outdoor education centres facing closure, an online petition has been established with the aim of getting Government to debate outdoor centre closures.
