We believe that Outdoor Sports are very important to many Europeans and need to be developed, managed and promoted to optimise and to provide sustainability to the benefits that they bring. The partners of the European Network of Outdoor Sports (ENOS) have highlighted the importance of a European Charter that expresses a shared vision for outdoor sports across Europe.

The 10 commitments for outdoor sports in Europe

Outdoor sports for all

We will promote all aspects of outdoor sports that is fully inclusive for all types of participants.

Physical and mental health

We recognise and promote the evidence that outdoor sports have a positive e­ffect on the physical and mental health of participants and e­ffectively contribute to EU targets for Health Enhancing Physical Activity (HEPA)

Education and socialization

We recognise and promote the value of outdoor sports for education and social development, especially for young people.

Environmental awareness and conservation

We believe that outdoor sports must respect the environment to ensure sustainability and that outdoor sports can raise awareness of environmental issues.

Safety of participants

We believe in the importance of training, qualification and independent accreditation in outdoor sports to ensure the safety of practitioners, especially the youngest and least experienced.

Employment and impact on the local and global economy

We believe that outdoor sports can support economic and business development for territories and contribute to sustainable job creation.

Tourism and culture

We believe that the strategic development of tourism from outdoor sports creates opportunities to discover and value the natural sites of European member states.

Access to areas and sites

We believe that natural areas should be accessible for sustainable and responsible activities but that at times appropriate regulations and limitations may be considered in collaboration with all parties involved.

Professional mobility in the European Union

We believe in the mobility of outdoor sports professionals and the exchange of good practice.

Innovation and social inclusion

We believe that outdoor sports contribute to European citizenship and encourage social and cultural cohesion. Innovation is important to meet the needs of present and future generations.
