it's great out there

The #itsgreatoutthere campaign is playing a major role in the 2017 European Week of Sport (EWoS), which is part of the European Commission‘s major #beactive initiative.

During the last two years, the outdoor industry has been one of the most prominent participants in both EWoS and #beactive, showcasing how much the sector can contribute to the ongoing drive to get millions of citizens to be more active and embrace healthier lifestyles.

This year’s EWoS will run from 23-30 September and we are encouraging people all over Europe to get involved and share their experiences on social media. As an incentive, we have launched a big competition for the public, with outdoor kit worth more than €7,000 available to be won.

It’s really easy to get involved:

  1. Take someone outdoors and take a photo / video of the two of you
  2. Post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter
  3. Tag your friend and include the following hashtags: #takesomeoneoutdoors #itsgreatoutthere #beactive.

You can read more about the competition here. There is still time to enter and also to help us generate a huge online buzz about outdoor activities during EWoS. Please get involved and ask your family, friends and colleagues to do so too, making sure that you use both the #itsgreatoutthere and #beactive hashtags in any social media posts.
