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 ENOS CHARTER
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.
