For 2018 we are delighted to offer Event Volunteers a Leave No Trace Awareness Workshop. An Awareness Workshop is a one-day course delivered in the outdoors to help you have a better understanding of your impact on the environment. Experiential-based training in an outdoor setting is encouraged.
Participants will receive introductory training in the skills and ethics of Leave No Trace Ireland. Workshop topics include the underlying concept of minimum impact recreation and the seven principles of Leave No Trace:
- Plan Ahead and Prepare
- Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
- Dispose of Waste Properly
- Leave What You Find
- Minimise Campfire Impacts
- Respect Wildlife
- Be Considerate of Other Visitors
Places are only available to Event Volunteers who have previously attended at least One event with us. All participants will receive a Leave No Trace Certified Certificate of Completion. Training open to volunteers aged 18 and over.
