2023 has been quite a special year for @greentrailconcept: it has seen its birth and initial developments towards a more #sustainable #trailrunning and the creation of a sustainability certification for outdoor running events! All info in our new article, link in bio!

📅 Last month @greentrailconcept prepared a workshop aimed at gathering information to create a sustainability certification for outdoor mountain running events.

🌍 The event explored the opportunities, solutions, challenges and limitations for making trail running events more sustainable and involved the participation of a diverse group of stakeholders involved in trail running: race organizations, volunteers in races, local administrations, social and environmental entities, researchers, managers of protected areas and more.

🏞️ This diversity allowed for the sharing and comparing of multiple points of view, gathering experiences and information from the different existing perspectives that can be used to build a set of sustainability performance indicators for the certification that are realistic and adapt to the capabilities and responsibilities of the different actors involved.

👥 It was hosted and organized by @kilianjornetfoundation and @ecoserveis, with the help of @gridarendal and @osterlentrail.
