Respect the Mountains – 7 Ways to Make a Difference in Europe

For the third year running, Respect The Mountains is undertaking a grassroots initiative series called Envirotrek in co-operation with KEEN. An Envirotrek is an adventures outdoor event, to preserve your favorite nature spot. The Envirotrek starts in the morning with the clean up in a nature area. As groups, you will gather as much trash together as possible and get these mountains cleaned! After the clean up, we will barbeque together and enjoy our deserved break. But not for long; depending on which Envirotrek, you will take part in an outdoor activity like climbing, rafting or mountain biking. More than 200 participants were involved in 2010, collecting more than 50 bags of rubbish.
