The It’s Great Out There Coalition is a not-for-profit collaboration on a European level launched by the outdoor industry in 2017 to increase public awareness of the benefits and positive impact of outdoor activities for individuals and for society.
Here you can find inspiring stories from other users, tips, tricks and ideas that will motivate you for your next outdoor adventure. Because it’s great out there!

It’s great out there supports extraordinary projects with strong partners who want to be present. Present where they are really needed. We work Europe-wide to inspire and promote outdoor activities.
The Coalition provides funding to deserving projects aimed at getting people active outdoors responsibly through the #itsgreatoutthere grants.
Any organisation can apply for an #itsgreatoutthere grant. The grants will be given to non-profit initiatives which have primarily been developed to take new participants into the outdoors.
"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’. Using the #itsgreatoutthere grant, we connected with and inspired people with new outdoor activities and encouraged them to be more active in general."
“I simply love to be out in the mountains or at the ocean, living the moment and in the pursuit of something wild and new - to just go outdoors without regret or restraint. So it’s a pleasure for me to share all my journeys and adventures with the #itsgreatoutthere community and support this brilliant project, simply because it really is great out there.”
“Only when I began exploring close to home, beginning my #microadventures, did I realise how much adventure could and should be a part of everyday life. There is wilderness and beauty close to every city, and it needs our help not only to be protected, but also to inspire a wider range of people enjoy it. I am more than happy to support #itsgreatoutthere and encourage as many people as possible to engage with this great campaign.”
The Coalition raises funds to get Europe active outdoors through Outdoor Activity Days, days of physical activity in nature organised through the #itsgreatoutthere grants programme.
Every €40 raised, equals one person spending one day out in nature, learning about the benefits of outdoor activity for physical and mental health, learning how to spend time outdoors responsibly.
Let’s make a difference and get Europe active outdoors!
