Catalys undertaking Impact Assessment for Outdoor Tourism INTERREG project
Between now and the end of 2012 Catalys will be undertaking an Equality Impact Assessment for the Ireland/Wales INTERREG project.

We are however particularly interested in bringing together the views of equalities and outdoor activities professionals. The notion of examining the potential of Outdoor Tourism for its potential to promote inclusion is new and we look forward to some good debates.
Our colleagues ate STI, Marilyn Larder and Karin Eckhard, have agreed to coordinate their work on sustainability assessment with the equality work, which raises some fascinating opportunities to bring social and environmental issues together.
We will be consulting representatives of the outdoor sector along with equalities bodies. If you feel you would like to add to this debate please contact email@example.com
