Outdoors NSW sees advocacy as focusing on what we do in the outdoors and spreading the word about why being outdoors is beneficial to individuals and communities. Outdoors NSW advocates for more people to be outside more often.
A close cousin of advocacy, representation is where Outdoors NSW speaks on behalf of the outdoor community and seeks to advance policy, support and relationships with governments and strategic partners. This includes the development of standards, attending key forums about government policy, and conducting forums to keep members and industry up to date with change in both the government and private sector.
For what a great outdoors we have! From our legendary Snowy Mountains to the Pacific playground that is our coastline, from our western plains to our stately national parks – all 780 of them covering 8% of our 809,444km2 region.
