UK Outdoors and Equip Outdoor Technologies, owner of the Rab and Lowe Alpine brands, have announced a new partnership to support Equip’s strategic plan to bring together local and community action in the U.K. to promote the benefits of outdoor learning as current national Corona guidelines allow for a restart of services.

UK Outdoors, the industry body for outdoor learning, is a collaboration of the outdoor sector’s key organizations – the Institute for Outdoor Learning, the Association of Heads of Outdoor Education Centres, the British Activity Providers Association and the Outdoor Council. It has been working with the U.K. government throughout the pandemic to protect and promote the value of outdoor experiences, particularly for children and young people. UK Outdoors believes that planned and purposeful time spent learning and playing outdoors has a uniquely positive impact on people’s lives, and that it has never been more important.
