What can we do?

LEARN. Educate yourself as much as you can about the manufacture of the equipment you use to the choices you make about travel, lodging, and food. Learn about how events and races are organized.

ACT. Make decisions based on what you’re learning. Talk with event organizers about their environmental impact; talk with your favorite gear manufacturer about sustainable processes and social and environmental responsibility. Small choices can be transformative.

BUILD. Build community, build collaborations, build networks of people, and get them excited about the choices you’re making and the changes you can make together. There truly is strength in numbers.

INSPIRE. As athletes, adventurers, and others who are privileged to spend a whole lot of our time and energy doing what we love outside, we have both the opportunity and the responsibility to spread the word, cultivate resilience, and make real change!
