This MRD Talk brought together panelists from science, the private sector, civil society, and a global initiative to show and further explore how each of these groups can help prevent adverse impacts and increase the benefits of outdoor leisure activities for local societies and the environment. The discussion revealed clear awareness of each group’s responsibility, as well as the need and potential for greater collaboration across groups. A recording of the event and a summary of key insights are now available online.

The event was the fourth in the MRD Talks series, which is organized jointly by Mountain Research and Development (MRD) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) as part of the PRIMA project funded by Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC).
