WHAT ABOUT US ?
ACT for the Outdoors is a collective of companies and citizens acting together to protect natural spaces and to encourage sustainability in outdoor sports.
By creating this program, which Cluster Montagne joined in 2019, Outdoor Sports Valley wants to lastingly engage the outdoor sport industry as well as the protagonists of mountain tourism in the action of protecting nature, the playground of its practitioners.
All stakeholders are concerned (companies, communities, associations, individuals…etc) to financially contribute, through patronage, to associative projects of general interest.
In 2018, ACT for the Outdoors supported 5 projects by successfully collecting more than 50 000 euros.
Here’s a few examples of what sort of actions we supported last year:
Promoting soft mobility in the mountains with the association “Mountain Wilderness”.
Encouraging the sharing of space between black grouses and cross-country skiers with the association “Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux Isère”.
Making the high mountains accessible to young people, who live in the valley without having the opportunity to discover them, with the association “En passant par la Montagne.”
OUR GOALS :
To hasten awareness and to create a collective dynamic between the outdoor sport industry, local authorities, and individuals.
To mobilize the ecosystem of the outdoor sector on the importance of contributing to the preservation of sports practices’ environments.

THE 5 PROJECTS TO SUPPORT THIS YEAR
SURF RIDER FOUNDATION: ‘’Riverine Input’’, a project with the purpose to reduce oceans and rivers plastic pollution by studying the waste coming from the watercourses with the partnership of research laboratories and by offering efficient solutions at local levels.
MOUNTAIN WILDERNESS: Many settlements, mainly touristic but also industrial, agricultural and military are now abandoned in the French mountains.
FRANCE NATURE ENVIRONNEMENT 74: Uncontrolled landfill discovered in the bend of a path, water pollution, disturbance of protected species… As many damages to the environment often remaining ignored or worse, unpunished.
The aim of the project is to get better results, deploying the device by sensitizing and training outdoor sports practitioners so that they can identify and report environmental damage during their outings.
MOUNTAIN BIKERS FOUNDATION: Our trails need love! Or, how to invite the outdoor practitioners to switch from being trails’ consumers to stakeholders.
Trained practitioners will then be able to act and share on their territory,
allowing a rise in qualification of each and an awareness of the importance
of the heritage to maintain.
They are obsolete and must disappear.
This project aims at organizing cleaning operations in the mountain ranges. Mountain Wilderness association demonstrates the feasibility of dismantling and the strong community willing to make our landscape safe again.
To fight against this scourge, the FNE 74 movement has created the ‘’sentinels of nature’’, a citizen program which fights environmental
degradation through the detection of the latter with the app developed by the FNE 74.
Mountain Bikers Foundation wishes to conduct a series of trail maintenance courses with a network of all outdoor sport practitioners to lead to sustainable and responsible development of trails.
