CHALLENGE YOURSELF IN 2019

 

Do one or two things differently when you walk and climb, and you could make a positive difference for Ireland's mountains and upland areas. 12 suggestions below for you to challenge yourself, and others:

 

1. Car-pool whenever you can - it reduces emissions and saves on parking space.

2. Support the areas where you walk and climb by using shops, cafes, pubs and other services.

3. Do a 5-minute litter-pick around the area where you're parked before you head off for your activity.

4. If you come across a farmer on the hills, stop and have a chat.

5. Reduce the spread of erosion by keeping to the centre of paths.

6. Carry a bag to pick up litter that you come across in the outdoors.

7. Get the Biodiversity Data Capture app and make one biodiversity report from each day out.

8. Spend a day volunteering with Mountain Meitheal or the Mourne Heritage Trust.

9. Report dumping by phoning 1850 365 121 or using the 'See It, Say It' app. In Northern Ireland call 028 90569453.

10. Share the beauty of Ireland's natural environment with others through social media.

11. Cut down on flights by booking a holiday in Ireland.

12. Organise a club walk using public transport.
