|National outdoor recreation strategy survey||Fri, 19/06/2015||
The Sport and Recreation Alliance and the Outdoor Industries Association (OIA) have been asked by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to consult with the sport and recreation sector and produce recommendations on what could be included in a national outdoor recreation strategy.
This builds on momentum generated by the sport and recreation sector and cross-Government support for the benefits of outdoor recreation and the need to have a joined-up approach and leadership from Government in this area.
We know that many in the sector have already done great work in this area and we want to draw on this to inform recommendations for Government. So we have set up an online survey for you to tell us your views.
To keep the survey focused we have based it on themes identified throughout work already done by colleagues within the sport and recreation sector, such as the Landscapes for Everyone shared vision for British landscapes and key proposals for Government action drawn up by leading members of the outdoor community. Many aspects of these themes work across Government departments and will hopefully encourage a joined-up approach to outdoor recreation.
The themes are:
• The outdoors helps people be happy and healthy
However, there is space for you to tell us about other themes that you think should be considered.
Please remember that we are looking for specific, realistic recommendations to put to Government. These may include changes to legislation and regulations, investment in particular schemes or support for ways of working to achieve change.
The questions are designed to take you through a process that helps set out what needs to happen and why:
Please submit one survey per organisation by Friday 19 June 2015.
All completed surveys will be read and responses analysed and prioritised to inform what recommendations are included in our report for Government. We hope to share the report with you in autumn 2015.
