The growth in the popularity of outdoor recreation and ‘Challenge’ events has brought with it new pressures on the landscape.

Nurture Lakeland is leading on research into the environmental impacts of outdoor events and is working with the Lake District National Park Authority, Natural England, Friends of the Lake District and the National Trust to develop a range of sustainable practice ‘toolkits’ for event organisers.
