We are an International Non Profit Association with the aim to:
through lobbying politicians
and governing bodies to
support outdoor activity
The It’s Great Out There Coalition awards grants to deserving projects that share our core objective to ‘Get Europe Active Outdoors’.
Any non-profit organisation can apply for an #itsgreatoutthere grant. The grants will be given to initiatives that focus on grass roots projects, which have primarily been developed to take new participants into the outdoors.
Do you want to support our cause and sponsor an outdoor project? We work in partnership with European, national and regional authorities, all of the outdoor recreation industries, non-profit associations, other organisations, and directly with the public, to inspire and promote outdoor activities.
“We are really grateful for the support and the grant awarded by the It’s Great Out There Coalition, thanks to which we were able to add even more value to our ‘neighbourhood camping’, specifically supporting extra local outdoor activities. Nature is everywhere around us, including close by in our city parks. During our camp weekends, a lot of extra activity providers were able to join us and promote activities such as slacklining, outdoor yoga, bootcamps, running, and much more. To be able to offer these activities made it very easy for locals to join, get involved and try another outdoor sport, which crucially, we were able to show was available just around the corner and in the urban setting in which they live. Using the #itsgreatoutthere grant, we connected with and inspired people with new outdoor activities and encouraged them to be more active in general.”
